Hi Shelly,
error 1: you cannot write a method with in another methor(here main()).
error 2: Let's consider you declear call() in the class shelly,when you invoke call() method,you should placed a semicolon( at the end of the line of invocation(i.e call() .

But here main probleam is methed declare within another method.

regards
Rishi
