The question is:
The output to the screen (console/terminal window) produced by the running the following code?

and the answer would be :  "****" without double quotation marks.

is this right?


public void printStars()
{
    int n = 4;
    String s = "****";
 
    for(int row = 1; row<= n; row++)
    {
        System.out.println(s);
    }
}

This will print out the following will it not...

****
****
****
****

If you want a single row or four stars you need to modify this way:
public void printStars()
{
    int n = 4;
    String s = "*";
 
    for(int row = 1; row<= n; row++)
    {
        System.out.print(s);
    }
}

No, use system.out.println to add a new line after the output and use system.out.print to leave the cursor at the end of the output so that the next output will be suffixed immediately after the first.
