Now say that song number 4 is chosen and you want to randomize which word is blanked out.

int randIndex = rand() % 20;  // 0 - 19

// Add code here to use the random index to replace that word with an empty string in your output

ok thanks..i will try...

i have one more question... if in one category have 5 song how can i randomly display 2 song from that 5 song...
