Such questions are utterly ineffective. Do you want an article on polymorphism to be written on your order. Why not just reading about it?

Please see my comment to the question.

Try to start here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polymorphism_%28computer_science%29[^],
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polymorphism_in_object-oriented_programming[^],
http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/polymorphism/[^].

It's hard to explain why do I feel you are doing something wrong. You cannot just ask "what is polymorphism?", "what is inheritance?", etc., and learn something this way. It does not work this way. You have to learn all together, systematically. If you try to learn this here, that there, you won't catch the essence of thing.

Take a book, and read it from the beginning to the end, with a lot of attention, solving exercises as you go. Learn concepts, conceptions and techniques, all together.

Yes. Please go through the million of articles found over the web. But in simple terms "Poly" means multi "morph" means form. A single object which exhibits multiple forms/behavior is known as polymorphism. There are 2 kinds 1. Compile Time 2. Run time. We have to write an article to explain these. Better go through a good C++ book.

Polymorphism literately means 'many forms'.
Basically, one method is allowed to take many forms by using a different parameter set or by overriding in a derived class.

Actually, while "Poly" means "many" and "morph" means "form", "polymorph" means "change form" or "transform". Can't say how "many" transforms into "change" - that must be some kind of polymorphism ;-p
