Question v:-what is that which we can not do in inheritance but in interface
It is rather a question of what problems are eliminated by using interface rather than multiple inheritance.
Superficially, multiple inheritance looks attractive. However, having multiple superclasses means inheriting the implementation of each, which is problematic. Resolving conflicts among the multiple implementations can be difficult or impossible. If you don't think it's complex, look at the virtual base classes in C++.
