    Default im in a hurry!!Help with a programm..java game of guessing a word

    Hello im new in java , i have developed a code but i think it contains too many errors.

    I have to design a java game based on guessing a word.

    The game has 3 guesses which are randomly choosen, and every one of those has a current answer.



    for example:

    "shines and is yellow and roundround "

    (secret answer: sun)



    "Its cold and light"

    (secret answer: snow)

    "It has strings and a woman shape"

    (secret answer: guitar)


    Once one of the three keys is choosen randomly the user has 3 chances to be able to guess the right word, after the 3rd time the game has to display "you have lost"

    If you guess the right word within the 3 chances give there has to be displayed the phrase,
    "congratulations you have won"


    here is the code:

    import static java.lang.System.out;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    import java.util.Random;
    class guess {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    String arr_keys[] = { // guesses
    "shines and is yellow and looks round",
    "Its cold and light"
    "It has strings and a woman shape",
    };
    String arr_ans[] = { // answers
    "sun",
    "snow",
    "guitarl"
    };
    int numIntentos = 0;
    Scanner miScanner = new Scanner(System.in);
    int numRandom = new Random(). nextInt(3) ;

    //System.out.println("Random: " + numRandom);
    System.out. println ("********************************************" );
    System.out. println ("welcome \"This is guess the word game!!\"");
    System.out. println ("********************************************" );
    System.out. println ();
    System.out. println ("guess the following...");
    System.out. println (arr_keys[numRandom]);
    System.out. println ("********************************************" );
    System.out. println ("type your answer: ");
    String sTexto = miScanner.next();
    numIntentos++;



    if (sTexto.equals(arr_ans[numRandom])) {
    System.out. println ("you have won ");

    }
    else {
    System.out. println ("try again ");
    }


    }

    Aw man, I did have a full solution all coded for you. But when I realized you were in such a hurry, I knew I was probably too late, so I deleted it. Sorry I couldn't get it to you in time to reach your deadline.
