Hi,
I was reading queries posted by other so i got one doubt due to following sentences that
"You can "override" a non-final static method, although this is actually redefining it and hiding the original method."

but what i know that we can not override static method.
Am i correct or not,please clear my doubt? i have also created one program
but i am getting output-Overriden Meth
but in case of overriding it should print- Overriding Meth
