If a nested class extends the outer class...this makes no difference since the inner class already has access to all of the outer classes
members.Am I right?

Think that what will an Object of inner class have if it extends Outer class ? It makes no sense in real programming world as fas as I know but a very bewildering question can be framed using this concept.
