The OCP Java & exam objective states - "Design and create objects using a factory, and use factories from the API".

Does this pattern only include the "Factory Method" or "Simple Factory" pattern which includes creation of a factory method that return the exact subclass object based on the arguments passed to the method? Example -

Or it also includes Abstract Factory Pattern?
