    You could come up with an example yourself to test.

    You cannot overload several function that only differs in return type. I'll leave it as an exercise for you to actually prove that.

    Thank you
    I worked on some examples
    I came to know that function overloading in c++ not depend on return type
    only on parameters order, size & there type.
