you have to only answer to the question, that you have asked, there is nothing wrong with your code of java.

you have overdone the question, the answer checker is a program and not a human, so you gotta answer just according to what the question have had asked.

String name = console.readLine("Enter your name:  ");
//console.printf("%s", name);
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter a past tense verb:  ");
//console.printf("%s", pastTenseVerb);
console.printf("%s really %s this coding excercise", name, pastTenseVerb);

// check, the above 2 commented lines, if the question have had asked for it.
