Can't find my mistake in program.

I have written name and past tense in proper order but still throwing an error that should be in proper order.

Multiple.java
// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you.
String name = console.readLine("What is your name?  ");
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter past tense verb? ");
console.printf("My Name is %s",name);
console.printf("past tense is %S",pastTenseVerb);
console.printf(" %s really %s this coding exercise ",name,pastTenseVerb);

You need to remove the following code snippets:

console.printf("My Name is %s",name);

console.printf("past tense is %S",pastTenseVerb);
