Random to the colour object

I Have three colours which have been initialised using the getters and setters ( for example brown, blue and black). I have also generated values 0,1 and 2 by using Random. I just need to know how do I point 0 to the colour brown, 1 to the colour blue and 2 to the colour black in a public method called change. So randomly the cream object changes to those colour.

Thanks in advance.

This is what I got so far...

There are several control structures in java and all of them can be used to solve this problem. You should write out what you need to do in psuedocode to determine which structure is best for you. I have posted a link to a control structure tutorial.

An example of pseudocode:

Student class

create student object
initialize name, gpa, and major of student
print students information

I agree. Here's the link:
