    Please explain what the problem is. What does the code do incorrectly? What do you want it to differently?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Look at using the Random class's method to generate a random number and then use that number as an index into the array of Strings.
