Why is the output of the program not recursive?

Hi Jyothsna,

What makes you think there is recursion in the code? The method abc() doesn't call itself anywhere directly or indirectly.

Then what is the correct output? I think its option 4.Is it right?

Thanks,

Yes, it should output 0. You are not initializing the static variable, but the shadowing local variable.

Hi Rubin,
what do you mean by the above statement?

Hi Shweta,

Sorry for the misunderstanding, this is my mistake. I misread the static variable declaration and I thought its name was i as well.
:roll:
There is no shadowing going on because the static variable has a different name.
