Hi all,
The given answer is 1 & 3, I think choice 2 is also correct, because dynamic method lookup does not apply to static methods, we can always access static methods using ClassName.staticMethodName(), however static methods can be hidden in its subclasses.
Question 17)
Which of the following statements are true?
1) static methods do not have access to the implicit variable called this
2) a static method may not be overriden
3) a static method may not be overriden to be non-static
4) a static method may not be overloaded

Please correct me if I'm wrong!

Thanks for the replies.
From the previous discussions, I can conclude that a static method may not be overriden.
