How to instantiate this method in test class?

My apex class looks as below..

public static List<object> getOP(){

    User u = [SELECT Name,AccountId FROM User WHERE Id = :UserInfo.getUserId()];
    List<object> OP = [SELECT Id,Name,account__c from object 
                                    WHERE account__c = :u.AccountId];

    return OP;

in test method I am using below statement to instantiate above method.

getOP olrp = new getOP();

But I receive this error

error Invalid type:getOP

    Well, getOP is a method, not a type. You can't instantiate it. You can call it like this: List<object> yourObjects = Your_Class_Name.getOP(); – Martin Lezer Jul 20 '17 at 15:46

You'll want to read Static and Instance Methods, Variables, and Initialization Code. Only classes can be instantiated, and only if they're not abstract. Instance methods are called using an instance of a class, and static methods are called by using the static reference ClassName.methodName.
