Hi, I have 2 questions,

Do keywords like public and abstract always go first in declaring a method or a class?

Can a method have static variables?

For both of your questions, look at the main method. Declaring public static void main(String args[]) is same as static public void main(String args[].
For your second question, yes methods can have static variables.

Hi !!!

For the second question you cannot declare a static variable within a method, but you can use a static variable in a method.

why methods static they are not inherited, ja that class belongs, and methods static are not inherited ja that it belongs to an instance.
