Can someone kindly tell me why the result is the AA's result is
20,10,30,31 and not 20,31,30,31 ?
class B{

public class AA {

public static void main(String arf[]){

System.out.println(x.x);

Hello Bani
I have stepped through the code jotting donw the values:
AA x = new AA(20); // x.x = 20
B y = new B(); // y.x = 10

x.m1(y); // x.x = 10
y.m1(30); // y.x = 30

((AA)x).m1(y); // x.x = 30 but later 31 because of x.x++ in m1
hope it helps
