Hi Ruchi & hema,
You need to be careful with unicode characters as they are also valid characters in your source as well. In your case, '\u00a' is inserting a carriage return in your code immediately after the 'a'. This is terminating your line of code prematurely. The reason /* */ works is because this is a multi line comment and will comment out the (now) two lines of code, so the complier will ignore it.
