Wrong arguments to call super

Reports cases when any call to super(A, B) does not meet the following requirements:

  • B is an instance of A

  • B a subclass of A


class Figure: def color(self): pass class Rectangle(Figure): def color(self): pass class Square(Figure): def color(self): return super(Rectangle, self).color() # Square is not an instance or subclass of Rectangle

As a fix, you can make the Square an instance of the Rectangle class.
