Hi Richard
It is always better to use super in such a case. I had just given an example of how to access i in class B and how to get i from its ancestor. You are right , one should use super to access i from A. I just wanted to show that it is the type of object refernece that matter in case of name hiding. If you are using super keyword then there is no ambiguity at all.
