Since the topic was "static factories," I assume this refers to the Collections class. This class "consists exclusively of static methods that operate on or return collections." The Collections class (not to be confused with the Collection interface) cannot be extended (or instantiated) because its constructor is private.

I did get confused with Collection interface. Thanks for pointing it out. Your reply was very helpful now that I can move along reading the book.
