No for these basic exercises you don't need to include any of the boilerplate code. So no class or methods or anything like that needed. They also instantiate the console object for you automatically so you don't have to worry about that.

You only need to type code that does the exact thing the challenge is asking for. So for the first task you only need to type a single line of code that creates a variable called firstName, and sets it equal to a string that contains your name.

thanks andren...it helps me alot
