You can't. this() and super() can only be called from a constructor context. And you can't do super().super() or something like that. Only the super class is visible. If you just want an A object then just directly call the constructor.

Not Possible. You cant break the Constructor Chaining.

Let me "try" to explain why ....
ahem

C extends B and B extends A

So, if you want to create an Object of C, A has to be created *, or a better word would be .. Constructed.
Next, B will be constructed and then C.

Thus the constructors will be called in that order.
You can choose to call a specific Immediate parent constructor by using super keyword

However skipping B's constructor would mean that C will be created without B and thus will not work.

* Note that only one object is created not 3

Better to say that part of the C object which is unchanged from A is created, then that part unchanged from B, but not in A, then the parts only in C.
