Array and condition problem

I have an array which contains the names of days read from a line in a test file which contains other information, such as time etc.

For example,

com1402, Dr Andy Gordon, Monday, 0900

(The purpose being to record when a lectuer is to take place)

The code is written below

I KNOW that lecDayArray[0] holds the string "Monday". However, the above returns the word "No", although it should return "Yes". What is wrong with my code?

Use lecDayArray[0].equals("Monday") instead of lecDayArray[0] == "Monday"

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
