What is the difference between public member and private member of a class.


Srl Public Member Private Member
1. A public member can be accessed outside the class by creating a class object in other methods. A private member can only be used within the methods of the same class.
2. A public member can be accessed by child classes as public, private or protected based on the visibility mode set while deriving the child class. A private member is not visible to even the child class.


class Father
private: int x;
public: int y;
class Son:public Father
private: int p;
public: int q;
void childfunc()
x=10  //This is not valid even for a publicly visible child class
y=10;  //This is valid as y is publicly visible

int OutsideFunc()
Father F;
F.x=10;  // This is not valid as x is private
F.y=2-; //This is valid as y is public
