The round-up game has informed me that an abstract method MUST be overridden (question #15).
However, if a method is abstract, there is nothing to override. Technically, this should be called implementing the method, no overriding it.

Technically (and sematically), "overriding" is correct because you declare a method with the same signature in a subclass. The overriding method does implement the body of the abstract method, though.
I'd like you to read the Javaranch Naming Policy and change your publicly displayed name to comply with our unique rule. Thank you for your cooperation.
