for more green try:

       g.setColor(new Color(0, n * RG_INC, 0);

>     g.setColor(new Color(n * RG_INC, n * RG_INC, (n + 1) * BLUE_INC));

you need to change that line to change the colour.
what colour do you want it to be?

thanks alot it works just fine one more question i was doing this since last weekend my assignmet was to add more ovals and change the color of this code the one i just paste but it took me some time will you be kind if you can explain me the way i newbie like me will understand i want to know how to add more ovals and change the colors of this ovals cause to be honest when i add the ovals i just guess the numbers that i've changed in the variables and finally got it but it was a guess am not sure how to do it i will paste the very original source code and can you explain how to add two or more ovals to it and how to change the color cause you gave me the answer which i appriciete thats what i asked but can you tell me the steps so i can have this in my files for future programs thanks for my first question you answered .

this is the original code :

import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;


/**
 * This applet draws a scene consisting of ten nested blue ovals
 * on a black background, along with a text message.
 */
public class Wormhole extends Applet
{
    /**
     * Do all the drawing.
     */
    public void paint(Graphics g)
    {
        // Draw the black background.
        g.setColor(Color.black);
        g.fillRect(0, 0, 500, 350);
       
        // Draw ten nested "holes."
        drawHole(0, g);
        drawHole(1, g);
        drawHole(2, g);
        drawHole(3, g);
        drawHole(4, g);
        drawHole(5, g);
        drawHole(6, g);
        drawHole(7, g);
        drawHole(8, g);
        drawHole(9, g);
         
        // Draw the text, in white with a blue drop shadow.
        g.setColor(Color.blue);
        g.setFont(new Font("TimesRoman", Font.BOLD, 36));
        g.drawString("On to Cydonia!", 22, 300);
       
        g.setColor(Color.white);
        g.drawString("On to Cydonia!", 20, 298);
    }
   
    /**
     * Using the supplied Graphics object, draw the n-th hole.
     * n should be between 0 (darkest, largest) and 9 (lightest,
     * smallest).
     */
    private void drawHole(int n, Graphics g)
    {
        int X0 = 50,        // x-anchor
            Y0 = 50,        // y-anchor
            W0 = 350,        // initial width
            H0 = 200,        // initial height
            X_INC = 30,        // x-anchor increment
            Y_INC = 10,        // y-anchor increment
            RG_INC = 10,    // red-green increment
            BLUE_INC = 25;    // blue increment
           
        g.setColor(new Color(n * RG_INC, n * RG_INC, (n + 1) * BLUE_INC));
        g.fillOval(X0 + n * X_INC, Y0 + n * Y_INC,
                    W0 - n * X_INC, H0 - n * 2 * Y_INC);
    }
}

to paint another oval it looks like you need to add another call to drawHole()

        // Draw ten nested "holes."
        drawHole(0, g);
        drawHole(1, g);
        drawHole(2, g);
        drawHole(3, g);
        drawHole(4, g);
        drawHole(5, g);
        drawHole(6, g);
        drawHole(7, g);
        drawHole(8, g);
        drawHole(9, g);

to add another try adding:

drawHole(10, g);

colour is specified using the red, green and blue components (0-255) in the following caLL:

    g.setColor(new Color(n * RG_INC, n * RG_INC, (n + 1) * BLUE_INC));

red = n * RG_INC
blue = n * RG_INC
green = (n + 1) * BLUE_INC

yes i add the (10,g); but in order for that oval to appear you need to modify the variables which i cant
