We cannot have two varags and a string passed in the same method. If not why?

The restriction on variable arguments is that you can only have one single var-arg parameter, and it must be the last argument. That's to make it easier/possible for the compiler to work out which ones are part of the variable parameters. For example: that 3 arguments in a and none in b? Or 2 in a and 1 in b? Or what?

You can only have ONE variable argument list in a method, and it must be the last one in the declaration.

type doesn't matter.
