How do i solve this please help thank you!

I can't figure out what that response was. Can someone please help?

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response;
boolean doesNotUnderstand;
  response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
  doesNotUnderstand = (response.equalsIgnoreCase("No"));
  if (doesNotUnderstand){
    console.printf("Because you said yes, you passed the test! \n\n");

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

You're really close! But I see two issues:

  • there's an extra "printf" inside the loop that will print another line the challenge may not be expecting
  • the challenge wants you to use token substitution in the final "printf" instead of concatenation
