I am stuck! I'm not sure what I have done wrong. Could someone please help me with this Java

I have the code linked below

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

You did not instantiate noun or isInvalidWord, but you can also complete this challenge without so many new objects. Another issue is that you haven't added while after the statement.

String response;
do {
    response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops? ");
} while(response.equals("No"));
