 Q1. Explain CloneNotSupportedException ?Core Java
Ans. If we do not mention, Cloneable Interface to the Class which we want to Clone then we get this exception, only if we try to clone an object

public class TestClone{
   protected Object clone() throws CloneNotSupportedException {
      return super.clone();

In Main, You try to do:
TestClone clone = new TestClone();
      TestClone clone2 = (TestClone) clone.clone();

You will get CloneNotSupportedException.

Just add -> public class TestClone implements Cloneable {

and things are fixed.
