What is polymorphism?

Poly stands for “many” and morph stands for “form”.   It simply means the ability of an object to take more then one form.

In object-oriented programming, polymorphism (from the Greek meaning "having multiple forms") is the characteristic of being able to assign a different meaning or usage to something in different contexts - specifically, to allow an entity such as a variable, a function, or an object to have more than one form

Polymorphism is an object- oriented programming concept that refers to the ability of a variable , function or object to take on multiple forms .A language that features polymorphism allows developers to program in the general rather than program in the specific.
