Getting Stuck with Declare a String variable named bestSport and initialize it to the first element of the sports array.

Just cant seem to get it to work. even changing the nextInt to 0

Array.java
String[] sports = { "Basketball", 
                    "Baseball", 
                    "Tennis" };
String bestSport = "";
Random randomGenerator = new Random();

//Declare a String variable named bestSport:
String bestSport;

//initialize it to the first element of the sports array.
bestSport = sports[0];

What is the problem? :)

No problem, if android is your first experience with programming I suggest you start with java lessons.
