    Default beginner-urgent java help needed

    Hello, I need some help with a question. I not a very good programmer myself so plese go easy on me. I'm a year 1 student in diploma in Information Technology.

    The question goes like this

    Write an application that will read in people names and their ages. Store them in two arrays. Then do a search of names to find the corresponding age. Follow these steps to write the programme:
    a) Create a class BasicsApp4.java with a main() method
    b) Add a readAge() method
    c) Add a readAges() method
    d) Add a readName() method
    e) Add a readNames() method that will call readName method to store 5 names into an array called nameArray
    f) In the main method, do the followings:
    -Declare ageArray and nameArray with size of 5
    -Call/Invoke readNames() and readAges() methods to read in 5 names and ages
    -Ask the user to enter a name and search for the age
    -Display name and age if found, else display name not found
    -Ask user to enter an age and display all the names with the same age

    Here is what i done so far, I'm not very sure if where i had gone wrong and i did not know how to continue.

    public class BasicApp4 {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    int[]ageArray = new int[5];
    String[]nameArray = new String[5];



    private static void readName(String[] nameArray) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.print("Enter name: ");
    name = sc.nextLine();


    private static int readAge(int[] ageArray) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
    int age;

    do {
    System.out.print("Enter age: ");
    age = sc.nextInt();
    while ((age<0)||(age>100));
    return age;

    private static void readAges(int[] ageArray) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    for (int i=0; i<ageArray.length; i++){
