Hi, Harsh Jindal verify that you must declare the String variable firstName and the imports for Console.

Hi Harsh,

Challenge is asking you to print this in following format:

"<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!"

Also, you do not have to declare class, main method or Console. All this is done for you in this challenge.

You must declare that firstName is a String then you must add the String to the printf with more text to it. Then with readline you enter a string(yourname) for exempel.

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named co
class Introductions{
  public static void main(String []args){
Console console = System.console();
String firstName = console.readLine("Enter your name:  ");
console.printf("%s can code in Java!", firstName);}
}
