As far as I know, random is a method in java.lang.Math clas which generates a random number between 0.0 and 1.0 and returns it as a double value. And in plain english, it picks a number from 0.0 to 1.0 randomly.(which ever it feels like).

yes. it can pick up any value from 0.0 to 1.0. when it does so, it can pick values < .1
