According to the solution,

*public ListNode addTwoNumbers(ListNode l1, ListNode l2) {
ListNode dummyHead = new ListNode(0);
ListNode p = l1, q = l2, curr = dummyHead;
int carry = 0;
while (p != null || q != null) {
int x = (p != null) ? p.val : 0;
int y = (q != null) ? q.val : 0;
int sum = carry + x + y;
carry = sum / 10;
curr.next = new ListNode(sum % 10);
curr = curr.next;
if (p != null) p = p.next;
if (q != null) q = q.next;
}
if (carry > 0) {
curr.next = new ListNode(carry);
}
return dummyHead.next;
}*

**Why I can't operate dummyHead in the method directly?**

Why I can't return the

please

Why I can't return the

*dummyHead.next*finally？please
