It depends on the type of object. Whether the object is of parent class type or derived class type. For eg: ParentA is a parent class and ChildB is its subclass and they both have a method called walk(). Now, ParentA obj = new ParentA(); obj.walk(); /*will call the walk() defined in parent class*/ ChildB obj2 = new ChildB(); obj2.walk(); /*will call the walk() defined in child class*/ So the object of a derived class call the method defined in derived class. Note: defined according to my knowledge in java.
