Hi,
I need help With #7 question 2 on Learn Java.It says write a multi-line comment that begins anywhere after the single line comment you just wrote.I don't understand?Which Single Line Comment?


#2

You were suppose to write a single line comment on the previous task. But if you somehow hacked your way thorough the next task, your just suppose to write a multi line comment. Like this:

//SOME ONE LINE COMMENT
/*

SOME MULTI LINE COMMENT

*/

Comments explained by MDN:

Single Line Comments

Single line comments start with //.

Any text between // and the end of the line, will be ignored by JavaScript (will not be executed).

This example uses a single line comment before each line, to explain the code:

Example

// Change heading:
document.getElementById("myH").innerHTML = "My First Page";
// Change paragraph:
document.getElementById("myP").innerHTML = "My first paragraph.";

Try it yourself »
This example uses a single line comment at the end of each line, to explain the code:

Example

var x = 5;      // Declare x, give it the value of 5
var y = x + 2;  // Declare y, give it the value of x + 2

Multi-line Comments

Multi-line comments start with /* and end with */.

Any text between /* and */ will be ignored by JavaScript.

This example uses a multi-line comment (a comment block) to explain the code:

Example

/*
The code below will change
the heading with id = "myH"
and the paragraph with id = "myP"
in my web page:
*/
document.getElementById("myH").innerHTML = "My First Page";
document.getElementById("myP").innerHTML = "My first paragraph.";

Just to avoid any confusion here.. MDN is for JavaScript which is a completely different language from Java.

Comments are created the same way though.
