There are two ways of shadowing either through scope or through inheritance.
• Hiding a method of child class and giving a new implementation is known as shadowing from inheritance.
• Shadowing through inheritance is the default when a derived class implements a method of base case which is not declared as overridden in the base class.
• Derived class member’s signature, return type, access level may differ from base class.
• Shadowing can be obtained by using the new keyword.
• Shadowing is one of the polymorphism’s concepts.
