I think the local var i declared in main() shadows the class var i. SO the o/p will be 20.
Correct me if i am wrong.

You can't have static var in your method.
Like u can't have private,public,protected var in your method.
Local var will be gone after the method ends so there is no need.

Yeah...Fei is right...you cannot have static variable declarations in methods. The correct answer is A.
However, Madhu, do take a look at this code...

Hope this helps

Hello,
I tried to compile this code but it wouldn't compile due to the static variable in the main method. If I remember correctly you can't declare static variables in methods. You can have them as class variables however. If anybody can elaborate or correct me please fire away.
