Having difficulties with task 2 in the Final Quiz

I thought I followed my notes pretty well, Ive been stuck here for two days. Can someone just show me the correct code to answer question 2 and I'll study the answer along with the question to get a better understanding please.

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
String response = "no";
Boolean isInvalidWord;
do {response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
   } while (isInvalidWord);

you have few mistakes , don’t initialize the response to “no” , leave it blank. and u don’t need the extra bool variable. inside the while u just need to write: ...while(response !== “yes”)

as long as the user enter don’t enter yes in the prompt u want to keep asking him if he understands while loop
