What is wrong with this?

intAsString = randomNumber + "";

RandomTest.java
Random randomGenerator = new Random (); //Construct a new Random number generator
int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(10);
intAsString = randomNumber + "";

You didn't declare intAsString as a String

Add String at intAsString so the answer will be like this

Random randomGenerator = new Random ();
int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(10);
String intAsString = randomNumber + "";

try removing the space between

Random

and

()

so it's just

new Random();
