Hi folks ,
There is a rule in
which states that
Rule 1.Only one public class per file is allowed.
I tried compiling a file in which I had declared one class as public and other class as dedfault .I got compile error which stated above rule.
What may be the isuue ?

Most likely because you forgot the other half of that rule:
The file has to have the same name as the public class.
If you gave the file the same name as the default class, it won't compile.
I agree. Here's the link:
