Hi,
I declared an instance enum with private/protected access modifier, The compiler did not flag any error. Whereas in the chapter one its mentioned that enums can only have public and default access. Can any one please clear my confusion?
Thanks
Deepak

Chapter one? Of what book? Possibly the book means that enums declared at top level can only be default or public?

If the enum declared out outside class then it should have only public or default access. Whereas, if the enum declared inside class then it may have private and protected too
