polymorphism interview questions and answers in c#

Question: What is polymorphism in c#?
Answer: Polymorphism mean one object behaving as multiple forms. One object or function shows different behavior in different scenario is called polymorphism. For example : Dilip is a human object or function which talking behavior will change according his Father, Mother, Son, Boss etc.
In C# there are two types of polymorphism
1.  Static or Compile time
·         Function Overloading
·         operator overloading
2.  Run Time
·         Virtual function

Question: What is method overloading ?
Answer: When a class have more than one method with same but different signature is called method overloading.
For example:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{

    class A
    {
       //1- Passed string parameter
        public void Add(string a, string b)
        {
            a = a + b;
            Console.WriteLine(a);
        }
       //2- Passed int parameter
        public void Add(int a, int b)
        {
            a = a + b;
            Console.WriteLine(a);
        }
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            A oA = new A();
            oA.add("Dilip","Singh");
            oA.add(10, 15);
        }
    }
}

Output:
DilipSingh
25

In above example Add is the same named function but parameter is different so when we call Add method passing parameter as string then Add method with string parameter will be access same as Add method with int parameter.

Question: What is method overriding?
Answer: To extend or modify the abstract or virtual implementation of inherited method, property, indexer or event is called overriding.
For example:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{

    class Demo
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            A oA;
            oA = new A();
            oA.Display();
            oA = new B();
            oA.Display();
        }
    }
    class A
    {
        public virtual void Display()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Base class");
        }
    }
    class B : A
    {
        public override void Display()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Derived class");
        }
    }
}

Question: When should be use method overloading?
 Answer:  When more than one method do same thing but take different parameter. eg Method Area(circle c). Area(Rectangle r).. the basic function is calculating area but with different structure.

Question: Advantage of Polymorphism?
Answer:
·         Invoking child class functions dynamically
·         Maintenance of code becomes easy.

Question: What is the difference between "new" and "override" keyword in inheritance chain ?
Answer:  Override: When a method of a base class is overridden in a derived class, the version in the derived class is used, even if the calling code didn't "know" that the object was an instance of the derived class.

New: If you use the new keyword instead of override, the method in the derived class doesn't override the method in the base class, it merely hides it.

Question: Will following code will compile? Why?
Answer:
A) class A
    {
        public  void Display()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Base class");
        }
    }
    class B : A
    {
        public override void Display()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Derived class");
        }
    }

Above code will not compile, because base class method should be mark with virtual class.
B)
class A
    {
        public void Display()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Base class");
        }
    }
    class B : A
    {
        public new void Display()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Derived class");
        }
    }
Yes above code will be compile because new keyword defines its own implementation and it's not related to base class method in any way.
C)
class A
    {
        public virtual void Display(ref int a)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Base class");
        }
    }
    class B : A
    {
        public override void Display(out int a)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Derived class");
        }
    }
Above code will give compile time error due to signature mismatch.
Question: What is the disadvantage of using virtual keyword?
Answer:
1.       Appropriate function calls are determined only at runtime.

2.       Since virtual keyword is used derived classes may ignore that base class implementations.

What is difference between UNION and UNION ALL in SQL Server

We use UNION and UNION ALL operator to combine multiple results set into one result set.
UNION operator is used to combining multiple results set into one result set but removes any duplicate rows. Basically, UNION is used to performing a DISTINCT operation across all columns in the result set. UNION operator has the extra overhead of removing duplicate rows and sorting result.
UNION ALL operator use to combine multiple results set into one result set but it does not remove any duplicate result. Actually, this does not remove duplicate rows so it is faster than the UNION operator. If you want to combine multiple results and without duplicate records then use UNION otherwise UNION ALL is better.
Following some rules for using UNION/UNION ALL operator
1.The number of the column should be the same in the query's when you want to combine them. 2.The column should be of the same data type. 3.ORDER BY clause can be applied to the overall result set not within each result set.
4.Column name of …

Merge and Merge join transformation in SSIS

MERGE TRANSFORMATION
Using Merge Transformation we can combine two sorted data-set into single data-set basically Merge Transformation used to combines rows from two sorted data flows into one sorted data flow. Following tasks you may perform using Merge Transformation: 1.Suppose we have a scenario like, we need to merge data from a database table and excel means we want to merge data from two different data sources. For such type of scenario, you can use Merge Transformation. 2.If we want to merge data from two same structured tables but exists two different servers. 3.Sometimes we get an error due to data in a row, after correcting errors in the data we can re-merge rows easily. See below explanations may help you to understand Merge Transformation: I do evaluate here, you already know about the data source, data conversion, data flow, task flow, control flow etc. Note:Before Merge transformation, we need to sort the data using Sort Transformation. After sorting data add data path to Merge…

Add day to ISODate in MongoDB

We can use $add operator to add days in ISODate in mongodb, $add is the Arithmetic Aggregation Operator which adds number and date in mongodb.
Syntax:

{ $add: [ <expression1>, <expression2>, ... ] }

Note:  If one of the argument is date $add operator treats to other arguments as milliseconds to add to the date.
Example: Suppose we have a Test collection as below.

{"Title" : "Add day to ISODate in MongoBD","CreatedDate" : ISODate("2016-07-07T08:00:00.000Z")}

Query to add 2 days in CreatedDate

db.Test.aggregate([      { $project: { Title: 1, AddedDate: { $add: [ "$CreatedDate", 2*24*60*60000 ] } } }    ])

Result:

{ "_id" : ObjectId("579a1567ac1b3f3732483de0"), "Title" : "Add day to ISODate in MongoBD", "AddedDate" : ISODate("2016-07-09T08:00:00.000Z") }

Note: As mentioned in above note we have to convert days in millisecond because $add operator treat to other arg…
