Here is a working solution. First I read the static resource PDF in a blob and attached that blob with the email. I hope this will help.

Messaging.SingleEmailMessage email = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage();
email.setSubject('Email using Apex');
String[] toAddresses = new String[] {'xxxxxxxx@gmail.com'};
email.setHtmlBody('<html><body>Hi <b>Saroj</b></body></html>');
StaticResource sr = [Select  s.Name, s.Id, s.Body From StaticResource s where s.Name = 'static_resource']; // 'static_resource' is the name of the static resource PDF.
Blob tempBlob = sr.Body;
Messaging.EmailFileAttachment efa = new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment();
email.setFileAttachments(new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment[] {efa});
Messaging.SingleEmailMessage[] emailList = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage[] {email};
