Poly means many and morphism means forms. Same operation in many forms called polymorphism.

The above mentioned point is a reference to function overriding which is a form of polymorphism. Hence in this case the answer is polymorphism

The point here is not related to an object but related to an operation, which in programming terminology is pointing to a method. A parent and child class both can have the same method but depending on the class that has invoked the method, the functionality of the method would be defined accordingly .
