Does the main method have to be static?
Also, if the main method is static, does that mean that there is a possibility that there could be multiple Example classes?

The main method has to be static because it's called by the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) at runtime.
You would be able to have multiple "Example" classes, as long as they were in different packages (folders).
You can have more than one
main methods. However, they have to take different parameters (see here).
