Re: Inheritance of Methods

    We can say that a subclass inherits methods in the sense that any method
    applicable to an instance of a class is also applicable to instances of
    any subclass (all other arguments to the method being the same).  For
    methods that have only one specialized argument, for example the
    accessors of a class, we say that subclasses inherit the use of those
    methods from the super class.

I agree with this.
