Hey Jhaycea,

try this:

String[] sports = { "Basketball", "Baseball", "Tennis" };
//this is your array of Strings
//it has 3 Strings inside 
//arrays start from 0, so the first String "Basketball" is on the 0 slot of the array and so on ....
//so you write sports[0] to get "Basketball" and so on
//the middle one would be sports[1]

String bestSport = sports[0];
//here you define a new String and gives it the first element of the sports array

int numberOfSports = sports.length;
//arrays have a method like length

String lastSport = sports[2];
////here you define a new String again and gives it the last element of the sports array

I hope it helps


thanks mate :)
