Please can any body explain. I think class and delegate are two different things.

This answer is incorrect as Any method that matches the delegate's signature, which consists of the return type and parameters, can be assigned to the delegate.

Yes Amazon is right the signature must match in order to implement the delegates on a class's method.

-->The CLR provides an "Invoke method" for each delegate.

-->Use of this method is, You do not have to call this method explicitly from C#, Visual Basic, or Visual C++, because the compilers call it automatically.

No, The signature of the delegate should be same as the signature of the method declared.
