Check the spelling of your argument to the printf method. Make sure it is printing out what the instructions are asking

This error is popping up

String firstName = "pranshu";
console.printf("%s", firstName);

This is what I was pointing out in my answer to your other question.

The instructions ask you to "make it write out "<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!"", so instead of just your name you will need to build a string that includes your name along with the other words and punctuation asked for.

So basically, your output still needs to have " can code in Java!".
