I think you should focus a little before studying for the exam.

It will hurt you to ask questions about these fundamental issues, which you must master before taking the exam.

Anyway, String is a immutable class, meaning that each method that would alter its contents will return a new String instance .

So, the replace method returns a new String instance, which is the reason why th equality operators returns false; they are two different objects.
