?when I click on withdraw link , system showed an error page with some JSP code displayed. I am expecting a data entry sceen for withdrawals for that link. As I cannot proceed testing with my withdraw functionality at all, this

bug has high servrity and it has to be fixed immediately for further testing and hence has high priority.

Any defect that is occur in an application, stops the functionality and further prevents the execution of application functionality can be termed as severity.
The developer has to fix that defect as soon as possible, hence the priority is also HIGH.

High Severity:

As others have stated... it is a bug that has a high impact on a product. High severe bug might have adverse effects on smooth running of the product or application. The bug that can end in crash of OS is one of the classic example.

High Priority:

Normally a bug gets its priority based on the immediate business requirements. A business might have a plan of accomplishing a product with specific functionality among its 5 other functionalities. Hence the functionalities are tested/fixed based on the immediate business requirement. Based on this timeline the bug attains its priority.
