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.

Two things here. First, if you click on the Preview button you'll see the errors it is throwing. It's unhappy with the redeclaration of
console. This variable already exists so there's no need to create it; you can just use it. So, delete your first line of code.
Second, the variable name needs to be camel case, so start with a lower case
f and capitalise the
Name so you end up with
That'll get you through the first task.
