The question is:
Which of these statements concerning the charAt() method of the String class are true?
And one of the answers is:
The charAt() method returns a Character object.
As far as I know, and according to the API, it returns a char, which is way different from a Character object.
Clarification?

Jason,
Yes, according to API, charAt() should return a char,
not a Character object.

Was wrong, with the helping of Paul, the very responsive and accomodating individual that I've had a small dialogue with from JQ+, the correct answer was that the charAt() method can take a char for an argument. My apologies to JQ+
Goes to show what happens when you spend too much time studying and no breaks in between (going to grad school, too).

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
