I’m probably going to get roasted for this question, but here goes.

(1) (most likey) said something about (2) that created a “test”. This test is used as the definition of a programming concept. Name the concept.

    Duck typing from duck test. If it looks, swims and quacks like a duck, then it is probably a duck – said by James Whitcomb Riley, the Hoosier poet.

    James Whitcomb Riley said “When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck.”

    This ‘test’ is used as the basis of duck typing.

    In computer programming with object-oriented programming languages, duck typing is a style of dynamic typing in which an object’s current set of methods and properties determines the valid semantics, rather than its inheritance from a particular class or implementation of a specific interface.

    The name of the concept refers to the duck test, attributed to James Whitcomb Riley, which may be phrased as follows:

    “When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck.”

    James Whitcomb Riley’s duck test “When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck.” leads to the programming concept of Duck Typing.

    james Whitcomb Riley’s comment that if ‘a bird walks and talks like a duck, i call it a duck’, led to duck typing.
