1. Static methods are inherited but not overridden (though can be redefined in the sub-class)

2. Only methods that are inherited can be overridden. As private methods are not inherited, they are not overridden. Static methods are inherited but not overridden. Constructors are not methods, hence can neither be inherited nor overridden..

Any reason why static methods are not overridden though they are inherited ?

Static methods are not inherited as normal methods are. The static methods are part of the class and are therefor part of every (sub)class. If a (sub)class however decides to re-define that method that method is re-defined. There are however a number of tricky rules which come into play when this happens.. Study the books on this.

That's a really sneaky question. dostuff() and doStuff() are different method names!
