    Default How many methods should be included in class definition

    Suppose you have an abstract class say Sparrow that extends the abstract Bird class. The abstract Bird class has the abstract methods, fly() and run()

    How many methods from the Bird class should you implement in the Sparrow class?

    you may not implement the abstract methods of Bird class since the Sparrow class is an abstract class.

    You may not implement, or implement as many as you need. in short it is up to you. since both classes are abstract
