First off, you're doing great! The problem is that you're going way above and beyond what they're actually asking for. They're going to set up main for you and any classes you need. Later on down the road they'll ask you to implement classes yourself. Your knowledge is beyond what they're expecting at this particular point :smile: This is the single line you need for step 1:

String firstName ="Anish";

Happy coding!

Thank you :-)
