Are any of the fields in the data quoted? Like..
10, "Snortum, Knute", 13.32
In the line above, there are only three fields and the second field is "Snortum, Knute". If you have data like that, I'd suggests using Apache's Commons-CSV.

The idea is that if the guess element == -1, then we have processed it before (it had an exact match and so we must not gonna count it again)
Do you know about the break statement?
The rason for that is, say:
if guess = [3, 1, 2] and solution = [1, 5, 1] and if we check the 1 from guess, then we find immediately a matching 1 at location 0. Now, if we do not break the loop here, we would also find a match at location 2, so that we find 2 matches instead of just 1.
