    Why Java uses Singly rooted hierarchy?

    All objects in Java are inherited from same base class called 'Object'.In Java all objects have common interface to implement and it makes implementaion of Garbage collector lot easier in Java.The necessary implementaion is provided in base class , and the garbage collector can then send the necessary messages to every objectc in the system.Without singly rooted hierarchy,it would have been difficult to implement garbage collection feature.It enables lot of ease to programmers not to be bothered about memory management while development.It greatly simplifies argument passing amongst object too on the heap. As Java started from scratch and has no backward compatibility issues with any existing language, it was a logical choice to use the singly-rooted hierarchy in common with most other object-oriented programming languages.
