If the number of passed type arguments is not equal to the total number of type parameters of a classifier, an exception is thrown. If any of the arguments does not satisfy the bounds of the corresponding type parameter, an exception is thrown.

    arguments: List<KTypeProjection> = emptyList(),
    nullable: Boolean = false,
