HI everyone..What I have to do it ask the user how many sentences they want to input. The give me a number and I have to reverse each sentence but it has to be like Line 1: (here would be the reverse sentence), etc all the way untill all their sentences have been reversed with the corresponding Line number. Example of the code should look like this

user input output

this is a test
 Line #1: test a is this
Line #2: foobar

warm up programs Line #3: programs up warm

this is what I got so please

this is what shows when I run the program

How many sentences are you inputing?
Please enter your sentences with a corresponding period(.)
I love cats. Cats rock. The cat hid under the bed.
Line1 :I
Line2 :I
Line3 :I

Significant effort has been spent on this problem at DIC to get the code this far. Progress has stalled.

You are using the next() method which takes the first word, delimited by whitespace. So you are reading "I" and leaving the rest of the input untouched.
By the way, you have no method shown for turning the input into an array of Strings.
I agree. Here's the link:
