1. What are the errors that you are getting??

2. Note that in your main method you have this

Student sw = new Student("Sefakor","1112348");

but your method student has this

public Student(String name, int id)

Notice that id is int but you passed it with a "".


3. You have a method String toString(). Java has a method toString() so if you can, pls use another method name. Inside this toString method, you have 3 return statements. When you issue a return inside a method, it will return back to the caller and codes below this return statement will not be executed.

If you want to return the whole string in the toStrign method, you can just declare another variable like wholeString = "the name is" + getName + "id is " + getId.
Then you can just return this string.

Hope this helps.
