Ok, to be honest it happens with regularity. Then it is even worse when I go and read the various discussions and I see that I have no Idea what they are talking about. Where did these people learn this and how did I miss it? Way confused with this task. But this is nothing new, I am perpetually lost.
Every now and then I get to a task, I read it, and I think: Am I in the right place? What did I miss? I have no Idea what this even says.....

You're not the only one, bro, don't worry. Plenty of us in the same boat as you, lol .

These tasks are all asking for the same thing, to take an existing class and wrap it with your own class to "add" functionality. This is actually a very powerful technique in Java when you have a class that almost does everything that you need it to. Instead of just writing your own class from scratch you can take in the class that already has most of the functionality you need then just add the additional functionality. Now with this task it wants you to take a FileWriter, then wrap it with your own class that has the same exact methods and constructors that a FileWrite has with the additional functionality of writing everything that is written to the file to the console as well. You can get a list of the constructors and methods from Java docs (FileWriter ).

One of the tasks that I personally had the most trouble with was one of these wrapper class tasks. Same exact issue, I read the requirements and was left with ?????????. Once you get it thought it all makes sense.

OK ok I read it five or six more times and it is beginning to become more clear.
