The easiest way to find the answer would be to try it yourself. Generally what you need to remember is that final and abstract cannot be used together and private and abstract cannot be used together. Generally modifiers like synchronized, strictfp are not constrained and can be used with other combination...

One way i used to remember is you can not have any non access modifier along with abstract in a metod.

Also you can not have private and abstract and native and strictfp together

All other combinations are allowed.

Correct me if i am wrong.
