Can anyone help?

I am unable to complete this challenge. Here attached the snapshot of my work so far with the bummer error I cannot resolve. Is there anyone hat can assist me and explain?

Example.java
// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String loops = console.readLine("do you understand do while loops?  ");
String response;
boolean isInvalidWord;
do {
  response = console.readLine("do you understand do while loops?");
  isInvalidWord = (response.equalsIgnoreCase("no"));
if (isInvalidWord) {
  console.printf("try again. \n\n");
}
} while(isInvalidWord);
if (response.equalsIgnoreCase("yes")); {
console.printf("Because you said yes, you passed the test! \n\n");
}

The instructions don't say that only "yes" should produce the response.

But they do say that the actual response should be returned as part of the message.
