Question:

A. Checked exceptions are allowed to be handled or declared.

D. Errors are required to be handled or declared.
E. Runtime exceptions are allowed to be handled or declared.

I think good answer is: B,C,E .

Isn't it?

It's not a typo. We had a fairly lengthy discussion on the topic though.

ps - I edited the subject line to indicate which book the question references.

Here is another topic about this question (with exactly the same conclusion).

And just for completeness: here you'll find the official errata overview of the OCA8 study guide.

And with regard to your subject
(Runtime exceptions can be thrown in any method)

Yes, runtime exceptions can be thrown in any method. And the compiler doesn't perform any checks to see if you declared or handled them (like with checked exceptions).

Thank you so much.

Problem was mine as non-english speaker.
