In NT4, can a global group be a member of local group?

In Windows NT server 4.0, we have local groups. Can a global group be a member of local group?
Yes, a global group can be a member of a local group, but a local group cannot be a member of a global group. Placing a global group into a local group is usually the way you assign access to resources to domain users. The acronym UGLY stands for Users are made members of Global groups which are made members of local groups which are assigned access permissions to your resources.
