i would be glad if u explain by code.
A general method is specific to an instance of the class. And a class method (defined using the
@classmethod decorator) is applicable to the whole class. Properties which are applicable to all the instances of a class are usually defined here and those which are specific to an instance of the class, go into the general methods. Example:
class Car: def __init__(self, color): self.color = color def get_color(self): return self.color @classmethod def red_cars(cls): # cls is the Car class print(cls)
Now, calling the functions using:
a = Car('Red') a.get_color() a.red_cars()
'Red' <class '__main__.Car'> None
None is printed out because the
red_cars() method returned nothing.
