Hi friends,
          Why is it not possible to invoke a nonconstant member function using a constant object?.Thanks a lot.

because that is the whole idea behind constant objects, that you cant change anything in it.  functions that are not declared const are able to change the data in an object and therefore would defeat the whole purpose of declaring it const in the first place, so const objects are not allowed to call them.  it is one more instance of rigid c++ object oriented programming
tmmet, these are beginning to sound a lot like homework questions.  We can ASSIST you on your homweork to some degree, but we cannot do it for you.   That is unethical and is cause for removal from EE (for both you and us).
