Where can I choose version of Android with Eclipse? (Jelly Bean,KitKat,Lollipop) In Android Studio it say percentage devices in market which have at least that version.
How regard to deprecated methods? Is well change to replacements ? or replacements are in only new Android version which is not handled by old devices?

There are gradel based configuration files and manifest of course that tells the IDE about the version of android for target device.
New things, methods, classes,packages are added in newer versions. That are not available in older versions. But the devices eventually are shipped with newer versions. Version 2.2 has been in use but now most devices are at least on version 4.2 and above.
There are compatibility packs too that allow some new features of newer versions, to be used in older versions.
