Confusion on using namespace in the program.

Why when using the System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(1000); you have to use the System keyword but with Console.WriteLine("Hello"); you don't have to?

I thought the use of using System; allows you to negate the word System

Thank you

Great question Isaac. The reason that you have to use the System.Threading is because it is a different namespace with its own classes and structs.

I'l give you a link to the MS Docs that gives a little bit of an explanation and shows you the different classes available.
