Python Object-Oriented Python Inheritance Super-Duper!

Regarding Super

class One: def init(self, name): self.name = name print("Parent init")

class Two(One): def init(self, name, age): print("Super init") super().init(self, name) self.age = age

a = Two("osama", 21)

Methods have "self" as a first parameter, but it is provided implicitly by the system. When callling a method, it's not necessary to pass "self" explicitly as an argument.

Also, when posting code, use Markdown formatting to preserve indentation and other important aspects of your code.

Thanks for your replay and your suggestion about formatting . I actually figure out the issue when calling init with super i have added the self in it and when i remove the self within the init the error is gone :) . I m new to python

ok done :)
