Setting properties in the constructor

Why does the constructor in Student need to set the name and age properties? Aren’t they already set by extending Person and then calling super(), since those properties are set in the Person constructor?

I also have this question. If I remove the arguments passed to the super constructor (name and age), it works the same way as with them. Hope someone can answer our question.
