Why does java not support Multiple Inheritance?
What does Multiple Implementation mean in java?
How does multiple inheritance implement using interfaces?
If we are using same methods(same signature) in two interfaces and we are implementing those interfaces in a class,how does it avoid multiple inheritance issues in java?
