Are variables declared in static methods static by default?

No, the variables in a static method cannot be static by default;they have to be declared explicitly static.By default, they r non-static

Variables declared in a method are neither static (Class Variables) or non-static (Instance Variables) they are Automatic Variables (or Local Variables) and as such are not part of the state of an Object which is they only way static and non-static have any context.
I Hope This Helps
