class Animal { //1
static int a=10;//2
public static void main(String args[]) { //3
callme(); //4
System.out.println("Hi"); //5
} //6
static void callme() //7
{ //8
System.out.println(a);//9
} //10
} //11
After which line is 'a' eligible for garbage collection ?
1) Line 4
2) Line 5
3) None of the above

Since 'a' is declared static, its scope is alive till the object persists. so the ans is obviously 3)none of the above
