1. public class Test {
2. public int aMethod() {
3. static int i = 0;
4. i++;
5. return i;
6. }
7. public static void main (String args[]) {
8. Test test = new Test();
9. test.aMethod();
10. int j = test.aMethod();
11. System.out.println(j);
12. }
13. }
What is the result?

A. 0
B. 1
C. 2
D. Compilation fails.

At line no 9 ..it calls to a.Method() where i increments and its value is 1.
At line 10 its calling to aMetod() again and it increments the value to 2.

or....is the declaration on line 10 is wrong.

static is not a modifier that you can use on a local variable.

static int i = 0;

"static" modifier can not use for local variable.
