Can any one please explain the below statement with example(Not getting to my knowledge because i am the beginner).
A reference variable can be declared as a class type or an interface type. If
the variable is declared as an interface type, it can reference any object of any
class that implements the interface.

The raw type version might be easier to visualise.
