    Default Making a Java quiz with Classes

    I have to make yet another quiz and I am COMPLETELY lost.
    I have to make use of classes, so one java file that uses the class file of another java code that tells the other what to do.

    I have one class file containing:
       Rectangle class, phase 3
       Under construction!
    public class FillInBlank
       private String question;
       private String answer;
       private String cans; // correct ans
       private String gans; // given ans
    /**		Constructor
    	public FillInBlank(String Q, String A) // Question and Answer
    			question = Q;
    			cans = A;
       public String getQuestion()
          return question;
       public String getcans()
          return cans;
       public String getgans()
          return gans;
    	public void setans(String correctAns)
    		cans = correctAns;
       public boolean check()
    	if (gans.equals(cans))
    		return true;
    		return false;
    	//needs setter for given ans

    Then I have another java file that has the actual quiz in it but I am SO lost of where to go from here

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class HW7
       public static void main(String[] args)
    	String input;
    	Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);
        FillInBlank Q1 = new FillInBlank("What programming lang?","java");
        FillInBlank Q2 = new FillInBlank("what command makes summary","javadoc");
    	  input = keyboard.nextLine();

    How do I get a user's answer and how do I output if it's correct or not.
    I am sorry if I am being very vague but to be honest not even I understand what my professor wants this week.

    I would have it show a GUI to make things a bit easier
    I would have in that gui your question on top then 4 buttons which can lead to new windows and one which will go to the next window and also have the answer next to the button.
    Good luck

    How do I get a user's answer
    If this is a console window application, you can use one of the next... methods of the Scanner class to read input from a user.

    Then use an if statement to test if the input is correct.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
