// String Variable declared as protected internal
protected internal string name;
public void print()
Console.WriteLine("\nMy name is " + name);
static void Main(string args)
access ac = new access();
Console.Write("Enter your name:\t");
// Accepting value in protected internal variable
ac.name = Console.ReadLine();
