 Q1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of Factory Design Pattern ?Design
Ans. Object Oriented Design Patterns is the science of identifying the pattern to make objects communicate in a way to effectively implement a Solution.

Factory Design Patterns is the pattern that recommends creation of separate Factory Object for creation of other object. So its like saying - If you want to create an object of ClassA, Talk to FactoryObject ( which is an object of FactoryClass ). FactoryObject in itself encapsulates the inputs and logic required to make the decision regarding the creation and construction of object.

Advantage of Factory Pattern - Loose Coupling and Segregation of Responsibilities. Now instead of hard binding the complete logic to decide the nature and shape of the object on the basis of some conditions, you are assigning the responsibility to some other object and hence making the relationship loosely coupled and hence main tenable.

Disadvantages - Before Understanding the Dis-advantages , we should understand that these patterns were chosen after a period of evolution and research and almost best fit for the required solution, otherwise these patterns would have easily been replaced by now.

Though the advantages of these pattern surpass the disadvantages keeping in mind the decreasing cost of resources and increasing scale of applications, but still loose coupling by means of additional objects results in decreased performance.
