if you are using java.util.Scanner, you can call sc.next() to get the next string token

Yep,

Ajay-Singh is right, you can use sc.next() to get the next string token.

I am making a simple quiz.

String questions[] = {
                     "What is the capital of Great Britain? "};

String answers[] = {        "London"};

I want to print out the question first so I did

System.out.print(questions);

Then

String user_answer = sc.nextLine();

for user input. Compare user_answer to String answers and display appropriate message.

The program then compiled fine, but when I ran it, it print out this instead of the question

[Ljava.lang.String;@ba5c7a

then use array
        String que[] ={"que0",
                      "que1",
                      "que2",
                      "que3"};
                     
        System.out.println(que[0]); //u have to show the index of que[], here is 0
        System.out.println(que[1]);
        System.out.println(que[2]);
        System.out.println(que[3]);

ok then I would have the same for answers

String ans[] ={"ans0",
                      "ans1",
                      "ans2",
                      "ans3"};

I also will need a variable for userinput

String user_input[];

How do I go on comparing user_input to ans?

if(user_input[] = ans[])
// instructions

That doesnt seem to work for me

use user_input
if(user_input.compareToIgnoreCase(ans[0]) == 0)// i assume index is 0
//do code

u use user_input[] for multiple user answer
then
if(user_input[0].compareToIgnoreCase(ans[0]) == 0 )
//
