    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:

    [code]
    **YOUR CODE GOES HERE**
    [/code]

    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    To understand it, Start by putting parenthesis around each expression in the statement.
    (conditional expression) ? (true expression) : (false expression)
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    return str1 == null ? false : str2 == null ? true : str1.equalsIgnoreCase(str2);

    for above statement, if str1 = null, then return false, else if str2 = null, then return true else str1=str2?
