Hello Sri,

Always copy and paste your code from original location. You have made many mistakes while rewriting in this post.

The potential error that i could see is you haven't type cast from Object to person class.

Is this the actual problem?

Vishal Pandya is correct about copy and paste; your modify method returns an Object which needs to be cast to person.

And always use code tags round quoted code; I have added them so you can see how much easier the code is to read.
I agree. Here's the link:
