The exercise tells you how to print the character. But what if I want to print a statement using this shortcut for if/else?
System.out.println(2 > 3 ? "Condition is true" : "Condition is false");
Thanks factoradic. Just so i know, the code written in exercise is
char canDrive = (fuelLevel>0) ? ‘Y’ : ‘N’;
So going by your line, shouldn’t the position of parenthesis be
System.out.println (2 > 3) ? “Condition is true” : “Condition is false”;
Nope. This code:
char canDrive = (fuelLevel>0) ? 'Y' : 'N';
is exactly the same as:
char canDrive = fuelLevel>0 ? 'Y' : 'N';
Parentheses in the first snippet are there only to mark where the condition starts and ends. You can add them to our
System.out.println((2 > 3) ? "Condition is true" : "Condition is false");
First (outer) pair of parentheses is there to enclose parameter of
Thanks for an immediate clarification!
You’re very welcome
