How can we repeat the same variable twice in a row if the program cycles through the variables?

For example:

%s(1) is interesting and %s(1) is beautiful, even better than %s(2).

1 Answer

You mean like this:

System.out.printf("%s(1) is interesting and %s(1) is beautiful, even better than %s(2).", variable1, variable1, variable2);

You can repeat variables as long as you include the variable for each %s you use.
