 Q1. What is widening and narrowing conversion in Java ?Core Java2017-06-06 12:30:31

Ans. Conversion means that the expression / literal / value of one type getting converted to other type.

Widening conversion is the conversion from Type A to Type B where B requires a wider space than A. For example - int to long, float to double, char to String etc. As the value moves to a wider space, there is no loss of information.

Narrowing conversion is the conversion from Type A to Type B where B requires a narrower space space than A. For example - int to long, float to double, char to String etc.As the value moves to a narrower space, there is a loss of information.
