class A
{
private int i;
public void modifyOther(A a1)
{
a1.i = 20; //1
}
}
Why a1 can access the private member i? Is it because this method within Class A?

Thanks

Hi
A method or a variable that is declared private i s not accesible outside the class.Thats is only the members belonging to the class can acces it.it can be used by the instance of the class that declares it
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
