In the line console console - system.abc();, the variable name console is listed twice in a row, and the value of system.abc() is subtracted from it. The variable console has already been created for you in the challenge, but if you were to create it, it would probably be of the form Console console = System.console();, with Console being the class name and console being the variable name, = instead of -, and a capital "S" in System.

In Java, the class String starts with an uppercase "S".

For the challenge, you don't need to create a class, so you can remove the first two lines and both closing } from your code.
