c# - An internal class can't be inherited by a public class

Jul 22 2011 9:21AM by Ramireddy   

Recently my colleague asked me this question, "Can a private class can be inherited by another class?" What do you think Yes? or No?

Question itself is invalid. There are no private classes in c#(Except nested classes). A class can be either public or internal only. You can't have other access modifiers.

Ok, lets convert the question now to "Can an internal class can be inherited by a public class"?

Answer : No

Class "B" can inherit from class "A", only if "A" has more or equal accessibility than "B". If class "A" is internal and class "B" is public, it means "A" has less accessbility than "B". So, "B" can't inherit from "A"
