Basically  Java supports only four types of inheritance:
1) Single Inheritance
2) Multi Level Inheritance
3) Hierarchicval Inheritance
4) Hybrid Inheritance

We can take support for multiple inheritance also but with the help of Interface.

There is only single Inheritence available in Java.

Multiple Inheritence is not available in Java because of following reasons..

1. It leads to confusion for the java program.
2. The programmer can achieve multiple inheritence by using interfaces.
3. The programmer can achieve multiple inheritence by repeatedly using single inheritence.
