Android Studio adds helper tags to the display of the code to to be helpful, such as the name of the arguments for the function you're calling. These tags aren't part of the actual code and they aren't something you write. They should have a slightly highlighted background around them. It's really easy for beginners to miss that.

For normal code writing, like the challenges, just leave them off:

 Log.d(TAG, "Activity created!");
