Here is my code..Is My conversion of the int random numbers into string and using in checkyourself method is wrong?If not then why the output error..the program gets stuck asking-enter the number perpetually.

You're doing some strange things in lines 49 to 56.

In line 49, you're generating a random number. You're not using that anywhere. In lines 51 to 56, you are adding strings that contain "randomNum", "randomNum+1" and "randomNum+2" to a list. Note that those are literally those strings - it looks like you expect that these strings will be evaluated to contain the random number, plus one or two, but that is not what happens. If you use a variable name in a string literal, it's not going to be evaluated automatically.
