The following is the question
class Base{
public static int iAge;

public class CSturt{
public static void main(String argv[]){
CSturt cs = new CSturt();
public void ww(){
Base b = new Base();
Base b2 = new Base();
b.iAge = 10;
b2.iAge = 20;
Integer iw = new Integer(b.iAge);

public static void col(Object o){
Integer iw = (Integer) o; //line 1
The ans is 2020.
Line 1 does not produce a ClassCastException while running. Any idea?

the only call to col() is col(iw); iw is an Integer, which is implicitly narrowed to an Object with the call, however, it is still an Integer object (referenced to by Object reference o) and can be explicitly widened (cast) to such within the col method.
Add col( new Object() ); (or any object other than Integer) to get the result you're expecting.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
