Could not pass the quiz ??

The quiestion is :Declare a variable that is named the camel-cased version of "first name". Store the user's first name into this new variable using console.readLine.

And my code is: import java.io.Console;

public class Introductions {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    Console console = System.console();
    // Welcome to the Introductions program!  Your code goes below here
    String FirstName = console.readline('What is your name?');



Just like the code in the video. I don't know why it didn't work.

You're doing way more than they want here. They are going to supply the main function and they import console for you. They only need one line of code. Take a look:

String firstName = console.readLine();

Oh thanks :)
