Only top-level class methods can be declared static

I copy and paste this sample code from Salesforce into the execute anonymous, but I get this error:

Line: 4, Column: 34
Only top-level class methods can be declared static

Why would a sample code from Salesforce not work? Thanks!

@isTest
                    
private class TestRunAs {
   public static testMethod void testRunAs() {
      // Setup test data
      // This code runs as the system user
      Profile p = [SELECT Id FROM Profile WHERE Name='Standard User']; 
      User u = new User(Alias = 'standt', Email='standarduser@testorg.com', 
      EmailEncodingKey='UTF-8', LastName='Testing', LanguageLocaleKey='en_US', 
      LocaleSidKey='en_US', ProfileId = p.Id, 
      TimeZoneSidKey='America/Los_Angeles', UserName='standarduser@testorg.com');

      System.runAs(u) {
         // The following code runs as user 'u' 
         System.debug('Current User: ' + UserInfo.getUserName());
         System.debug('Current Profile: ' + UserInfo.getProfileId()); 
      }
   }
}

Hi Long,

It is because this is a test class which can't be executed from the execute anonymous section. in order to execute save it as a new class in Apex Class section and they Click on Run Test.

Hi,

Note the following about the content of an anonymous block (for executeAnonymous, the code String):
• User-defined methods cannot include the keyword static.
