why is it not working

String[]frogNames = {"mike","ben","kris"}; String bestFrog = frogNames[0]; int numberOfFrogs = (frogNames.length); String[]lastFrog = frogNames[3];

here is your error:

String[]lastFrog = frogNames[3];

you currently have that variable declared as an array of strings. It needs to be a string, not an array of strings. you already declared a string variable once before like this:

String bestFrog = frogNames[0];

the format for your last line should be similar to the line above. the index is also incorrect
