Suppose I have 3 contracts, namely Owner, B and C:

contract Owned {
    address public owner;

    constructor() public {
        owner = msg.sender;

    modifier onlyOwner {
        require(msg.sender == owner);

Contract B

contract B is Onwed{
     constructor() public{
        uint256 totalSupply = 10000000000;     // any amount

Contract C

I want to create an instance of contract B, in contract C. There are 2 ways to do it

contract C{
     constructor() public{
          B instance = B(address_of_deployed_B);  // Method 1
          B instance = new B();                   // Method 2
          B instance2 = new B();                  // 2 instances of B


What I actually want here is, the owner of the contract is set to contract C's address.

But the following is happening.

Method 1 works fine when I try to instantiate this way, but since it's already deployed, I can't set owner properly. Method 2 is not able to deploy 2 instances of the contract in the constructor(shows revert).

[Edit 1] Method 2 is working fine. But it isn't working if you initialise 2 instances of the same contract.

The problem here is that it runs out of gas.

Maybe, in this case, it works, but if you have big contracts like ERC20 TOKEN, it may go out of gas and may not get deployed.
