Main.java:9: error: Illegal static declaration in inner class Main.SortAsc
			public static void main(String[] args) {         
			                   ^
  modifier 'static' is only allowed in constant variable declarations



can anyone help with this error

What I have tried:

import java.io.*; // for handling input/output
import java.util.*; // contains Collections framework

// don't change the name of this class
// you can add inner classes if needed
class Main {
	public class SortAsc {      
			public static void main(String[] args) {         
        int [] arr = new int [] {5, 2, 8, 7, 1};   
        int temp = 0;  
        System.out.println("Elements of original array: ");  
        for (int i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {   
            System.out.print(arr[i] + " ");  
        }  
        for (int i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {   
            for (int j = i+1; j < arr.length; j++) {   
               if(arr[i] > arr[j]) {  
                   temp = arr[i];  
                   arr[i] = arr[j];  
                   arr[j] = temp;  
               }   
            }   
        }  
        System.out.println();  
        System.out.println("Elements of array sorted in ascending order: ");  
        for (int i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {   
            System.out.print(arr[i] + " ");  
        }  
    }  
}  
}

You should only have one class statement. There is no need for an inner class in this code. And it is pointless adding one that does nothing.
Java
// you can add inner classes if needed
// remove this line -->          class Main {
	public class SortAsc {      
			public static void main(String[] args) {         
        int [] arr = new int [] {5, 2, 8, 7, 1};   
        int temp = 0;  
        System.out.println("Elements of original array: ");  
        for (int i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {   
            System.out.print(arr[i] + " ");  
        }  
        for (int i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {   
            for (int j = i+1; j < arr.length; j++) {   
               if(arr[i] > arr[j]) {  
                   temp = arr[i];  
                   arr[i] = arr[j];  
                   arr[j] = temp;  
               }   
            }   
        }  
        System.out.println();  
        System.out.println("Elements of array sorted in ascending order: ");  
        for (int i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {   
            System.out.print(arr[i] + " ");  
        }  
    }  
}  
// and remove this }

Remove the two lines indicated, and save the file as SortAsc.java
