Hi there,

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);

The while loop does the testing, so you don't need another if in there. Keep it simple for now and assume the user input is consistent by using equals() or you can use equalsIgnoreCase() if you prefer.

Steve.
