2: {
3: static void show()
4: {
5: System.out.println("Static method in Test");
6: }
7: }
8: public class Q4 extends Test
9: {
10: void show()
11: {
12: System.out.println("Overridden static method in Q4");
13: }
14: public static void main(String[] args)

16: }

Hi Anamika,
I don't know which compiler you're using, but I tried it on the JDK1.3 compiler (javac) and got the following message:
<pre>C:\jdk1.3\projects\test1\Q4.java:10: show() in Q4 cannot override show() in Test; overridden method is static
void show()
^
1 error</pre>
Regards,
Beno�t
