The strictfp modifier can be applied to a class, interface or method to guarantee that all float or double operations are processed according to the IEEE 754 standard. The strictfp modifier in a superclass declaration has no impact on an overriding method in a subclass. For that reason, it makes no sense to include the strictfp modifier in an abstract method declaration. This also applies to interface methods which are implicitly abstract. For the exam, I think all you need to know is that strictfp can be used with interfaces, classes and non-abstract methods.
