Gina ,

Take a look at this method ,your code gets the superclass info allright but what do you with it?? You just return the subclass info in the method. I hope this helped. If not come back ,we are glad to help

Just to make sure I am understanding correctly: I need to add the info retrieved from Super.getPerson(); to my return statement. How is that done with one return statement? is it Resultreturn Result,Result1?

Gina.

Can't you concatenate it into a single string like you are doing elsewhere within your code ??

I think you got it !!

But you can do it in a slightly shorter way:

public String getStudent() {
return super.getPerson() + "\nMajor: " + Major + " GPA: " + gpa;
}

And for efficiency you might like to look into The StringBuffer object !!!
