import java.util.StringTokenizer;

public class StringCount {
    public static void main(String [] args){
  BufferedReader br = 
          new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
     System.out.print("Enter string: ");
  try{
     String st=br.readLine();

     int count=0;

     String arr[]=st.split(" ");

     System.out.println("Number of words : "+arr.length);
      }catch(IOException e){
