Hi Rafya,

It looks like there was not a string firstName with your name assigned to it.

1) First, create a String variable called firstName and assign the variable your first name.

2) Print "Rafya can code in Java!" using conole.printf

3) Print your name by using %s and the firstName variable using conole.printf

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console

String firstName = "Rafya"; //task 1

console.printf("Rafya can code in Java!"); //task 2

//console.printf("%s can code in Java!",firstName); //task 3

If you have any questions I'll be happy to answer them.
