I don't see an error. Did you save the changes before running? Make sure you press control+s to make sure any change you made sticks. Only other possible error, is that you're missing a bracket at the bottom, but I think that has to do with the way you displayed your code here. Can you confirm all your brackets are in place?

Hi Jakub, At times the system`s code evaluator is tricky in pointing to you what the exact error is, so you will need to look closely at your syntax in order to identify the real problem if your code does not pass and the error message does not seem to make sense. In your block of code i see nothing wrong except that there are three spaces instead of two in the first console.readLine code.
