Hi,
If some class A extends the class B which has inner static class C then will class A be able to access the members of the inner class C. Why we give accessibility specifiers (public protected default and private)to the inner classes.

Yes, of course if the inner class and the member have sufficient access modifier.

I think my answer above is not what Rashi hopes.

Hi Rashi,
Member classes (this includes inner classes and static nested classes) are class members, like methods and fields. So, I think the reason we give accessibility specifiers (public protected default and private) to the member classes is the same as why we give accessibility specifiers to other class members (methods and fields).
E.g. If a member class is given a default access, only classes within the same package can access / create it (whether they extend the enclosing class or not). And so on...
What do you think?
