Stupid Question But Can Only Group 1 Win?

I'm trying to figure out how the Fed cup works and was wondering if Group 2 can win the Fed cup or are they only playing for their spot in next years Fed Cup?

If you're talking about world groups, then I think both have chances because there are a certain amount of teams divided into 2 groups

No. Only World Group can win. Another groups, zones are buttling for World group spot.

the worldgroup II winners of the first round will play against the losers of the worldgroup I ... and the winners of those matches will participate to the next worldgroup I

the zones' winners will play against the losers of the group II for a participation or a maintain to the group II

Its like a ligue: world group is a 1st ligue, the other groups are playing to advance to higher group.

Sorry I took long to come back. But yes, I was talking about WORLD Group 1 and World Group 2. So if I'm understanding right, World Group 2 are playing for a shot at next years Fed Cup and only 8 teams have a chance of this years Fed Cup and they are all in World Group 1??????????
