Name: Muneeb Mukhtar
Age: 24
Sex: Male

I am student of MCS(Masters in Computer Sciences) in AL-Khair University of Pakistan.I have completed half of MCS and now i am studing JAVA.

Only one concept of "UP CASTING" is teasing me too much and now i am fed up with that as all other concepts for example inheritance,interface is relating to "UP CASTING".

My main Problem is that I have understood how "up casting" is done but i could not understood what is the "ADVANTAGE" or purpose of "up casting".

I would be thankful to you to the crazy extent if You reply me as soon as possible.
