See the paragraph about Response for Class in the article:

... The response set of a class is a set of methods that can potentially be executed in response to a message received by an object of that class. The cardinality of this set is a measure of the attributes of objects in the class. Since it specifically includes methods called from outside the class, it is also a measure of the potential communication between the class and other classes.
