C++ | Virtual Functions | Question 14

Can a constructor be virtual?

Will the following program compile?

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
class Base {
  virtual Base() {}   
int main() {
   return 0;

(A) Yes
(B) No

Answer: (B)

Explanation: There is nothing like Virtual Constructor. Making constructors virtual doesn’t make sense as constructor is responsible for creating an object and it can’t be delegated to any other object by virtual keyword means.
