A class chain\textbf{chain}, or sometimes called Class Hierarchy\textbf{Class Hierarchy}, is composed of a set of classes where each class has at most single base class\textit{each class has at most single base class}, i.e., there is no class that inherits two other (base) classes. For example, let's say we have class A and class B inherits class A, and there is another class C which inherits class B. Then the class hierarchy is C \,\to\, B \,\to\, A .

See the following code which explains the difference between Inheritance Chaining, and Multiple Inheritance.
