It compiles fine, now instead of "this.i" i replace with i, and instead of Initializers1.k i have k, It gives compiler errors in the lines. This code would give compiler errors:
Please let me know any suitable explanation for such behaviour Thanks

static members are resolved (and thus initialised) in the order they are declared. As you're declaring k only after its first use in the initialisation of z you're getting an error. In the first case you're getting a forward reference which is resolved at runtime, in the second it's (attempted to be) resolved at compile time.
