Write a Java program to return true from a given string if the first two characters in the string also appear at the end.

Sample Solution:

import java.util.*;
public class Main
{
public boolean firstInLast(String str) 
{
  if (str.length() < 2)
    return false;
  else if (str.substring(0,2).equals(str.substring(str.length()-2, str.length())))
    return true;
  else
    return false;
}
public static void main (String[] args)
    {
      Main m= new Main();
      String str1 =  "educated";
	  
      System.out.println("The given strings is: "+str1);
      System.out.println("The first two characters appear in the last is: "+m.firstInLast(str1));
