only the final keyword will prevent inheritance.
therefore A,D are correct
B is syntatically wrong, so is E cant have final and abstract togther, static methods can be overriden but, its called hiding since the behavior is different(its not exactly overriding)

NO Inuka! You better give 1.6% back to Sun

Static methods cannot be overidden, they can only be hidden.
The final attribute also prevents hiding of static methods.

Hmm but isnt hiding a type of overriding , meaning you can declare a method in the class that inherits the parent with the same signature, thats how I understood the question. But you are right thats why I said it is hiding above.
Even in the spec they talk about each in the same breath


java spec

If a method declaration overrides or hides the declaration of another method....

so.... what is correct?
These types of questions realy confused the hell out of me when I did practice tests. Because some practice tests sometimes refereed to hiding as overriding.. and thats without considering the confusion with inner class terminology. Forutnately for me the real thing was very clear...(can I have my 1.6% back pleeeeaaaase )

sorry Net... not trying to confuse you...

Hi all,

which two declarations prevent the overriding of a method?
A. final void methoda(){}
B. void final methoda(){}
C. static void methoda(){}
D. static final void methoda(){}

Thanks in advance..
