Java Branching Statements

Hi!Branching Statements. About the code String[] rsvps = Rsvps.shuffled(); Where Rsvps and shuffled() came from? Thanks!

Hi! I'm new here.

Craig used Rsvps and shuffled(). What do they represent? How do they work?

When I compiled and ran the whole code:

import java.io.Console;

public class Prizes {

public static void main(String[] args) { Console console = System.console(); String[] rsvps = Rsvps.shuffled(); int prizesGivenAway = 0; int drawingNumber = 0;

while (prizesGivenAway < 5) {
  String winner = rsvps[drawingNumber];
  console.printf("Is %s present?  ", winner); 
  String isHere = console.readLine();
  if (isHere.equalsIgnoreCase("no")) {
  String size = console.readLine("What is your shirt size?  ");



it really didn't work. Why?

Thank you so much!
