class Company
{
    public $SizeOfGeeksforGeeks = 13;
    protected $SizeOfGFG = 3;
}
  
// Using ReflectionProperty 
$A = new ReflectionProperty('Company', 'SizeOfGeeksforGeeks');
$B = new ReflectionProperty('Company', 'SizeOfGFG');

}
class Department2
{
    public $SizeOfCoding = 6;
}
class Department3
{
    private $SizeOfMarketing = 9;
}
  
// Using ReflectionProperty over above classes
$A = new ReflectionProperty('Department1', 'SizeOfHR');
$B = new ReflectionProperty('Department2', 'SizeOfCoding');
