Hi Harsh,

I would recommend reviewing the video right before the challenge.

To call the printf on the console object. This is the proper syntax.

console.printf(firstName + " can code in Java!");

Also you will want to use the variable "firstName" not a text string as part of the argument in parenthesis. If you review the instructions you will see that they want some additional text, not just the first name.

Hope this helps and happy coding!
