What is static method override?
Having same static method in the base class and derived class with same signature and return type, is called as static method overriding.
Having same function name for multiple static methods in the same class, with either different number of parameters or different type of parameters or different order of parameters is called as static method overriding.
Static methods can not be overridden in the exact sense of the word, but they can hide parent static methods in the derived classes.
overriding concept is related with run time polymorphism. static keyword is related to compile time. So the sentence itself is contradictory. So it is not possible to override static methods.
