User comments below. All of them might not be correct.

Ans is we overriding concept where child class redefine the method in the Parent class..overriding occurs when inheritance is involved, in overriding the return type,name,num and order and type of arg must be same
here class A is the Parent class and class B is Child class,in the Parent class we have the getResult() with the 2 arg and we are  returning the int the Child class we are overriding the same methodh which returns the sum of the arg but here compiler will raise an error Bcz getResult() is defined as final in the class A so we can't override it in the Child class

Ans is compilation error since we cannot override the final method getResult in class A into class B

we get error at line.....//

public int getResult(int a,int b) and raises an error as overridden method is final

ANS IS C (Compilation Error)

--Here,the concept of "Method Overriding" keyword is used.

--Here,Three classes are defined:
3.B (it extends class A)

--Inside main() method, object of class B() is created.After that getResult() method is called by passing 0 and 1.

--Inside class A getResult() method is defined as final inside which logic of multiplication is written.

--Final Keyword:
In java final keyword has 3 uses:
1.Declare Constants
2.Prevent methods from getting overridden
3.Prevent classes from getting extended.

As here,getResult() method is declared as final so it can not be overridden.But in class B attempt is made to override this method which gives compilation Error.

--After that,class B is defined which extends the class A and getResult() method is overriden inside which logic of addition is written.
