HI Pankaj,

Array Covariance:

For any two reference types A and B, if A is a derived type of B, a conversion exists from an array of type A to a compatible array of type B. A compatible array is an array of the same rank and type. This relationship is known as array covariance. Array covariance in particular means that an element of an array whose element type is B may actually be an element of an array whose element type is A, provided that both A and B are reference types and that B is a base type of A. In the following example, the second invocation of F causes a System.ArrayTypeMismatchException exception to be thrown because the actual element type of b is String, not Object:
