1)An instance of an Anonymous inner class can only be created in it's outer class
Q: Is this statement true?
In JvalTest, the answer is "false". But I cannot think about a way how an anonymous inner class be created outside of it's outer class.
Thanks

I think correct statement as the following,
An instance of an Anonymous inner class can only be created in an instance of outer class
that is why answer is false

Here is a simple example that shows that an instance of anonymous inner class can be created outside its outer class.
The class Outer has a method which returns an anonymous class object. This method is called in class Test41, and the print statement shows indeed an anonymous inner class object is created.

C:\JavaRanch>javac Test41.java
C:\JavaRanch>java Test41
I am an anonymous class object
