Inheritance is a process in which one object acquires all the properties and behaviors of its parent object automatically. In such way, you can reuse, extend or modify the attributes and behaviors which are defined in other class.
In Python, the class which inherits the members of another class is called derived class and the class whose members are inherited is called a base class.
The derived class is the specialized class for the base class. The class whose properties are inherited by other class is called the Parent or Base or Superclass.
And, the class which inherits properties of other class is called Child or Derived or Subclass.
Inheritance makes the code reusable. When we inherit an existing class, all its methods and fields become available in the new class, hence code is reused.
