    Default

    Instance is an instance of a class. So, an instance is an object made from a class. Instance variable is a variable that belongs to an instance, Local variable is a variable declared and defined in a method. If your object has an instance variable " int a" and the object has a method in which it has a local variable named int foo, in the method, the name foo should refer the local variable.
