    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            // Example of Delegates in C#
            ACDelegate del = AddNumbers;
            Console.WriteLine("Add Method : " + del(1,2));
            del = Subtract;
            Console.WriteLine("Add Method : " + del(1, 2));
        public delegate int ACDelegate(int a, int b);
        public static int AddNumbers(int a , int b)
            return a + b;
        public static int Subtract(int a, int b)
            return a - b;
