String response;
boolean isInvalidWord;

   console.printf("Try again. \n\n");

Jimmi already sead. Add a semicolon but add a " ) " after ("No") ....

So your line should look like this:

isInvalidWord = (response.equalsIgnoreCase("No"));

or :

let the () and do it like this:

isInvalidWord = response.equalsIgnoreCase("No");

isInvalidWord = (response.equalsIgnoreCase("No")

I think you just need to add a semi-colon to the end of that statement

String response;
do {
   response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
} while (response.equals("No"));

console.printf("Because you said %s, you passed the test!", response);
