Hi,
This is from Marcus mock exam3.
Is the following statement
1) true or
2) false?
"a nested top-level class cannot declare any static variables, static methods, or static
initializers."
ANSWER IS TRUE.
Nested top level class means static inner class right??static inner classes can have static stuff right???

Sree,
You are right. This discussion had already come up in Marcus's Discussion board and he accepts the qstn is in error. Since his page has got frames I can't direct you to the exact page. So I post the answer from Marcus here.
I am moving this to Errata Forum. Thanks.

I have a feeling you are right and the question is wrong. However I put notes on all my answers and you will see that I make a reference to the O'reilly version of the Java Language Reference (page 123 to be exact) where it makes this rather odd claim.
Noticing how wierd this was I have looked up the errata at oreilly.com and this is not mentioned.
Strange. But to get back to your question I think my question is in error.
Marcus
