Inheritance and copy constructor

Problem 1. You are to design an abstract class called Employee whose members are as given below (make them protected):
Data members:
char *name
long int ID

Two constructors:
A Default constructor // initialize data members to the default value and a copy constructor
Methods:
setPerson (char *n, long int id) //allows user to set information for each person
A function called Print () // should be a virtual function, that prints the data attributes of the class.and a destructor
Also define two classes that derived from class Employee, called Manager and Secretary. Each class should inherit all members from the base class and has its own data members and member functions as well.
The Manager should have a data member called degree for his/her undergraduated degree (e.g. diploma, bachelor, master, doctor), the Secretary should have her contract (can be a Boolean value 1/0 for permanent/temporary). All member functions of derived class should be overrided from their base class.

Write the following main() to test your classes
int main() {
Person * p = new Manager("Bruce Lee", 0234567, "Dr.");
P.print();
Secretary p2;
p2.setPerson("Wilma Jones", 0341256, "permanent");
delete p;
p = & p2;
p.Print();
return 0;
}

Do you see any polymorphic behavior ? What do you learn from this example ?Problem 2: Write a template for a function that displays the contents of an array of any data type.
Problem 3: Write a function that searches a numeric array for a specified value. The function should return the subscript of the element containing the value if it is found in the array. If the value is not found, the function should throw an exception.
