My doubt is which method will be invoked at the indicated line, because class Base has 2 print methods and both can take a Base object as an argument?

[ my previous stupid reply has been deleted ]
When more than one overloaded methods are valid candidates, the "most specific" overloaded method is chosen. Hence the Base version will be chosen, not the SuperBase version.

According me the Base class contains
two overloaded methods
1.public void print(SuperBase sb){
System.out.println("Super");
}
from SuperBase class
2.public void print(Base b){
System.out.println("Base");
}
from Base class
check code below


please correct me if i am wrong.
