Q1: Default Constructer,Copy Constructer,Destructor,Assignment operator

None of them can be made pure virtual. Constructors never are virtual (because there is no instance where virtuality could work on), destructor may be virtual but not pure virtual (as all destructors get called) and operators can not be virtual.

Q2: Compile error. However, that compiles:

    Derived   d;
    Derived*  pd = &d;
    Derived** ppd = &pd;
    Base*     pb  = pd;
    Base**    ppb = &pb;

Don't know what you mean exactly?

1. For your 1st question, use the virtual destructor.

Though you make it pure, you still need to provide the body for it. Otherwise, it will give you a linking problem.

2.  You gotta use the dynamic_cast for it.

Hope this helps
