What's the cat's name?

The first thing a person/robot/variable receives after it is born/spawned/created is a name. Our brains aren't very comfortable with the idea of a world without names and titles. Let's come to their rescue: let's create a special automated naming method that sets the value of the private String variable name, i.e. names the object.

Hope this link helps someone else as well. It provides a list of Java commands with explanations and helped me figure out some of these exercises: • Java Command Explenations

Does this.name is the name inside the method and normal name is the global one inside Class ?

This is what I am thinking yes. But it does not accept name = this.name.

Hard for us romanian native speakers to properly understand english requirements. I can see you level up so you fixed this ?

Yes, I did all of them, even though it was very difficult. But it is worth it.

looking at the previous example I did Cat.name = name; why is this wrong. I am so confused when to use this. and when to use Cat.

lI'm late, but still: You should use this.name instead of cat.name it's something with visibility of variables - method setName can't see class Cat - but I have no idea why

Cat.name is to be used only when you are using static variables that cannot be changed.For none static and declared in a class, you should use this.blahblahblah
