        public Account(int id, String name)  


            this.id = id;  

            this.name = name;  
        static Account()  
            rateOfInterest = 9.5f;  
        public void display()  
            Console.WriteLine(id + " " + name+" "+rateOfInterest);  
   class TestEmployee{
       public static void Main(string[] args)  
            Account a1 = new Account(101, "Sonoo");
