Challenge 5 is confusing. I ran my code to count 1 to 9 and it refused to validate my code correctly

I've run this code several times. I really think this exercise have some bugs.

Messy.java
import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.List;

public class Messy {
    public static void main(String[] args) {

        System.out.println("one");
        System.out.println("two");
        System.out.println("three");
        System.out.println("four");
        System.out.println("five");


        // Please comment out this line and
        // this line as well with a hotkey that does multi-line commenting
        List<String> numberWords = Arrays.asList("six", "seven", "eight", "nine");
        for (String numberWord : numberWords) {
            // Use the sout shortcut to write out numberWord;
            System.out.println(numberWord);
        }
    }
}

So the trick here lies in what they ask you to do to the results file. They want you to add to the results file what the output from the console should be. Adding this to the results file allowed me to pass the tests with your code.

one
two
three
four
five
six
seven
eight
nine

Hope this helps.
