Static methods pertain to a class and do not require an instantiated object. Abstract methods must be implemented by an instance; they require an instantiated object, therefore it makes no sense to have a static abstract method.

If a method has abstract....specifier it has to be implemented...
Now if it had the specifier static...then that becomes
a class specific method...
static makes it class specfic and yet with abstract you want to implement that in another class..
This is only explanation on the matter I have ...can be wrong ..
