I'm not sure if you are on task 2 or task 3. For task 2 you are to print:

"<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!"

without the variable created in task 1. For task 3 you replace <YOUR NAME> with the variable from task 1. In your case the output should be:

"Edward can code in Java!"

So you have a good start for task 3 but you are missing " can code in Java!" in your string.
