Hello Aakar,

Since the printf method is a member of console object (java.io.Console), you will need to call the method from the console object provided.

The benefit of the printf method is being able to provide a format as the first argument and the variables you wish to use as the other arguments. In this case, you don't need to concatenate the string, instead, you'll want to use a format with %s as the placeholder for your first name.

Here's an example

console.printf("%s loves Java!", firstName);

I hope this helps
