Time for action—Declaring some fields

Now, imagine that we want to create a class named Person. Its instances should have a public name field, a private age field, and the class should have a static and public count field.

    class Person
    {
    public var name : String; //This one is public
    var age : Int; //This one is private
    public static var count : Int = 0; //This one is static and initialized at 0

    var name : String; //This one is public

    }
