Bear's point is that we're not just going to hand out an answer: you need to ShowSomeEffort.

If *I* was asked that question I'd walk out of the interview, because they're obviously not looking for a developer of my experience level.

to help you out, i googled a site that may help you

Polymorphism and Inheritance are directly connected in OOP so if you dont know it then I would take some time in understanding how to properly create objects, abstract classes, interfaces, etc.

What the world needs now is a better Java IDE
