Hi Kendall.

see my suggestion:

// TASK1
Random randomGenerator = new Random(); 
// Random should be uppercased
// it is the name of the Random class you are initializing

// TASK 2
// int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(); // no range inside the parenthesis for TASK 2

//TASK 3
int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(10);
// the number should be 10 (range from 0 - 9)

//TASK 4
String intAsString = Integer.toString(randomNumber);
// no need to create a String array
// use the method toString() from Integer class to convert int into String

Makes sense?
