Static is something that stays the same. In this instance, the question refers to a static IP address; these addresses are manually set and remain the same for the set duration (for in-house equipment, indefinitely; for guests, the duration of their stay).
Dynamic is something that changes. For IP addresses, it means that the address can change every time a computer connects to the network.
