What will be the output of the C#.NET code snippet given below?

namespace IndiabixConsoleApplication
    class Sample
        static Sample()
            Console.Write("Sample class ");
        public static void Bix1()
            Console.Write("Bix1 method ");
    class MyProgram
        static void Main(string[ ] args)

[A]. Sample class Bix1 method
[B]. Bix1 method
[C]. Sample class
[D]. Bix1 method Sample class
[E]. Sample class Sample class

Because whenever you call some static method, If that class instance is not already created, it create an instance and then execute static method.

Constructor can be invoked as when as object is created. Thats why default constructor is invoked first.

The constructor is not invoked in this example.

Here default constructor sample is invoked first when object is created. So it will print Sample class Bix1 method.

In constructor static constructor always execute first.

I think the answer is wrong. Here no need to create object. Not creating object means constructor is not invoked. In order to call static method we required class name. Classname.Methodname();

The correct answer is option B.

Please anyone tell clearly why static constructor doesn't call first?

No need for calling as class name, the method as static, and main also static, so no need to specify the sample.Bix(), Bix(); is more enough. The o/p is "Bix 1 method".

Because no need call static constructor it will invoked automatically and call the static function with class name.

Because first static constructor is invoke automatically no need to invoke explicitly and then static method is called.

Ans- Sample class Bix1 method.

The entry point of the program is main().

When we write a static constructor, this is the next block of code execute implicitly after main() either you call it or not.

Here we not created object then how can default constructor invoke?

I have run the same code but I'm getting output: Sample class only.

But your output is option A. Anybody, please help me out. I didn't understand.

The Constructor will call at the time of object creation only and static method will call at the time of compilation. So here we are not create any object for constructor so the output is sample class only.

No need to create object.

Constructor will get when we create an object but in this program not create an object why?

Static constructor first block of code which always executes first even main method.

The programmer does not call static constructor, because static constructor implicitly called.
