Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype Looping until the value passes


Came up this which does the trick when i compile and run it on my pc. However it wont let me pass the exercise. Would love if someone could help me out.

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
        String response;
        boolean isTrue;

    do {
    response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops? ");
    isTrue = (response.equalsIgnoreCase("no"));
    if(isTrue) {

      console.printf("U dum\n\n");

        console.printf("Because you said " + response + ", you passed the test!");
