for(int i =0;i<5;i++)
{
Demo d = new demo();
}
//line 1




How many object can be garbage collected at line 1
5 or 4
since even if d is out of scope at line 1
but it is still having reference to object demo??

5 objects will be garbage collected.

Reference is out of scope,meaning at line 1 no reference is for demo object.
