A class is private...not sure about those members...probably private too.

A class is internal by default, and its members are private by default.

Unless thay have changed the rules recently the default accessibility level of a class is private.

Sorry, guys, but the article that ozymandias posted clearly says:

"Classes and structs are declared as internal by default"

It is the class's members that are private by default. Not bothered about the points, just don't want you getting the wrong answer.

It's a tricky one.

An internal class is public to classes in the same assembly but private to ones outside that assembly.
Does this means it more public than private or more private than public ?

Well, if it's a question of choosing between the four statements, then they're all false.
