Hey im having trouble making the tester part of a program. In the first part I made a class named student:

``````public class Student {

private String name;
private int idnumber;
private double gpa;
private int credithours;

public Student(String studentname, int idNumber, double gradepa, int chours) {
name = studentname;
idnumber = idNumber;
credithours = chours;
}

public String getname() //Accessor Methods
{
return name;
}
public int getidnumber()
{
return idnumber;
}
public double getgpa()
{
return gpa;
}
public int getcredithours()
{
return credithours;
}

public String getyear() { //gets students current year
String year = "";
if (credithours < 18) {
year = "The student is currently in first year.";
}
else if ((credithours >= 18)&&(credithours < 48)) {
year = "The student is currently in second years.";
}
else if ((credithours >=48)&&(credithours < 78)) {
year = "The student is currently in third year.";
}
else if ((credithours >= 78)&&(credithours < 108)) {
year = "The student is currently in forth year.";
}
else if (credithours > 108) {
year = "The student is currently in fifth year.";
}
return year;

}

public String getstanding() { //gets students standing
String standing = "";
if (gpa >= 2.5) {
standing = "The student is first-class";
}
if ((gpa >=1.75)&&(gpa < 2.5)) {
standing = "The student is second-class";
}
if (gpa < 1.75) {
standing = "The student is third-class";
}
return standing;
}

}``````

Now the second part of the question is:

a. Declare a 1-D array of n (given as input) Student objects. Then, for each student, input name, id
number, grade point average and number of credits, create a Student object and store it in the
array.
b. Determine and output:

the name and id number of each fourth-year student with first-class standing, a count of the number of first-year students, and all attribute values for each first-year student.

I just don't understand how to work the 1-D array. I do not just want the answer but any tips or pushes in the right direction would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks, dave

Check array of objects.
