   public static void Test(object obj) {
      One x;
      Two y;
      if (obj is One) {
         Console.WriteLine("Class One");
         x = (One)obj;
      } else if (obj is Two) {
         Console.WriteLine("Class Two");
         y = (Two)obj;
      } else {
         Console.WriteLine("None of the classes!");
      }
   }

   public static void Main() {
      One o1 = new One();
      Two t1 = new Two();
      Test(o1);
