Signleton is not a language class or class specific attribute. It is a design pattern by which can can maintain a object lifetime of a class object for the whole application life.
Sealed class is a class that you can not extended/inherit.
Static Class is a class you need to create all member under that class should be static. You can not create instance of that class.
The based on their characteristics, you can declare/create that type of class based on your problem context.

Correct, a 5. I would recommend not answering non-questions though.

It is a valid question. The answers were also right on the money.
Singleton is Design Pattern in which you make the constructor private so that its object cannot be declare directly, you will need to create Instance of the class and than you can use it.

public class Singleton {
   private static final Singleton instance;   
   private Singleton(){}
   public static Singleton getInstance() {
     if (instance == null)
       instance = new Singleton();
     return instance;

public Singleton singleton = Singleton.getInstance();

Sealed Class:
Just go through this points and you will get idea of sealed class

1. A class, which restricts inheritance for security reason is declared, sealed class.
2. Sealed class is the last class in the hierarchy.
3. Sealed class can be a derived class but can't be a base class.
4. A sealed class cannot also be an abstract class. Because abstract class has to provide functionality and here we are restricting it to inherit.

Static Class:
Static class is used where you have some utilities lib in you project and you can create common class and can set as Static class
Static classes only contain static members.
Static classes can not be instantiated. They cannot contain Instance Constructors
