Suppose if use case A includes usecase B, who is the actor for B? Is it the same as the actor for UseCase A ?Thanks.

I think yes, because <<includes>> means that UseCase B isnt independent (must be implemented to be used (like abstract classes or interfaces)). <<extends>> means, that UseCase is independant and can be extended if needed.

Correct me if i am wrong.

Something went wrong here. I meant:
I think yes, because "includes" means that UseCase B isnt independent (must be implemented to be used (like abstract classes or interfaces)). "extends" means, that UseCase is independant and can be extended if needed.

Sorry for double-posts
