I don�t able to get the below three rules.Can anyone please explain each one as coding.

The declaration of a member needs to appear before it is used only if the member is an instance (respectively static) field of a class or interface C and all of the following conditions hold:

�The usage occurs in an instance (respectively static) variable initializer of C or in an instance (respectively static) initializer of C.
�The usage is not on the left hand side of an assignment.
�C is the innermost class or interface enclosing the usage.
