if static methods are restricted to call only staic methods and data,
how can main() be static and yet call any kind of methods or data.

Welcome to JavaRanch!!!
How do you find your statement to be correct?
Can you come up with an example?
Static method can't access non-static method or instance member, because
there is no "this" reference in it. The same applies to main() method also.
