    Default HELP! Constructor and "toString" method...

    Instructor wants 1. The class is divided into multiple methods. 2. The toString method is included in the Card class to return the face and suit.
    3. Needs a constructor?

    public class Card
    {
     
    public String cardGeneration()
    {
     
    Random generator = new Random();
     
    int x; // random integer representing suit
    int y; // random integer for card value
    String mysuit, mynumber; //assigning names, these will be changed 
    int suits = 4, numbers = 13; //depending what card is picked
     
     
    x = generator.nextInt(suits); // random integer between 0 & 3 inclusive
     
    if (x == 0)
    mysuit = "Clubs";
    else if (x == 1)
    mysuit = "Diamonds";
    else if (x == 2)
    mysuit = "Hearts";
    else if (x == 3)
    mysuit = "Spades";
    else
    mysuit = "NA";
     
    y = generator.nextInt(numbers) + 1; // add 1 so that y is between 1 & 13 inclusive
     
    if (y == 1)
    mynumber = "Ace";
    else if (y == 2)
    mynumber = "Two";
    else if (y == 3)
    mynumber = "Three";
    else if (y == 4)
    mynumber = "Four";
    else if (y == 5)
    mynumber = "Five";
    else if (y == 6)
    mynumber = "Six";
    else if (y == 7)
    mynumber = "Seven";
    else if (y == 8)
    mynumber = "Eight";
    else if (y == 9)
    mynumber = "Nine";
    else if (y == 10)
    mynumber = "Ten";
    else if (y == 11)
    mynumber = "Jack";
    else if (y == 12)
    mynumber = "Queen";
    else if (y == 13)
    mynumber = "King";
    else
    mynumber = "NA";
     
    String result = mynumber + " of " + mysuit; 
    return result;
     
     
        } 
    }

    Can someone please help me make these corrections?

    Thanks!
