I don't know what is wrong with my code, especially the "array":

Here's the code:

import java.io.Console;
import java.util.Random;

public class BranchingStatements {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

      Console console = System.console();
      Array [] Rsvps = {"Eric Bailey", "Warren Buffet", "George Michaels", "Lawrence Sheinfield", "Bruce Willis", "Ryan Gosling"};
      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("is %s present?  ", winner);
      if (isHere.equalsIgnoreCase("no"))

       String size = console.readLine("What is your shirt size?  ");



Error: BranchingStatements.java:9: error: cannot find symbol
Array [] Rsvps = {"Eric Bailey", "Warren Buffet", "George Michaels", "Lawrence Sheinfield", "Bruce Willis", "Ryan Gosling"};
symbol: class Array
location: class BranchingStatements
1 error

Mod Edit: Fixed code formatting - see comment for how to do this yourself!

When posting code, there is some markdown you can use to make it more readable. If you wrap your code in three back-ticks you'll get special formatting, and you can optionally add the language for fancy syntax highlighting.
