The question is:
Which of these statements concerning the charAt() method of the String class are true?
And one of the answers is:
The charAt() method returns a Character object.
As far as I know, and according to the API, it returns a char, which is way different from a Character object.
Clarification?

Jason,
Yes, according to API, charAt() should return a char,
not a Character object.

Was wrong, with the helping of Paul, the very responsive and accomodating individual that I've had a small dialogue with from JQ+, the correct answer was that the charAt() method can take a char for an argument. My apologies to JQ+
Goes to show what happens when you spend too much time studying and no breaks in between (going to grad school, too).
