true - if we consider declaration only
false - if we consider also inheritance (static member can be inherited)

But We can have static members in "Static Inner class" if enclosing class does not have any static/final member

public class Tests {
public static void main(String args[])
{
}
static class inner
{
static int s=10;
public static void rt()
{

}
}
}
