Thats right. In the case of overridden methods, the following rules apply: ** overriding methods that throw exceptions, may throw the same/a subclass or a runtime excption that are thrown by the overridden methods and for overloaded methods they are: ** overloading methods may throw any exception that are not available in the overloaded method [This message has been edited by Lionel (edited May 30, 2000).]

The question as worded makes no sense to me: TRUE or FALSE: overloaded methods must not throw new checked exceptions not thrown by the original method. The term "original method" has no meaning in the context of overloaded methods, but it does in the case of an overriden method. Are you suggesting that the student is supposed to spot that the question makes no sense and so answer false?
