Question about extra credit question?

  boolean isValid;
   String words="dork nerd";

   String adjective;
      System.out.print(" Enter a name :");



I want to censor user's input.It seems like String contains method doesn't work,since every time i enter one of the censored word still i am getting out of the loop.

1 Answer

You should write

isValid = words.contains(adjective);

Variable isValid tells you, does your String "dork nerd" contains your input or not.
