I have a copied the code to a new Messy file in IntelliJ project as advised but not sure how to go further by Check Work

I copied the code and now stuck as it doesnt move forward and not sure what to do next to go to the next Challenge. I guess the wordings need a bit more clarification in the question. Meanwhile, can someone help?


import java.util.*;

public class Messy {
    public   static void main(String[]      args){
    System.out.println( "four"       );     System.out.println("two");
    Please comment out this line and
    this line as well with a hotkey that does multi-line commenting
    List<String> numberWords = Arrays.asList("six", "seven", "eight", "nine");
    for (String numberWord:         numberWords) {
      // Use the sout shortcut to write out numberWord;

Hi Wajid,

It's not that you're doing things wrong...

Currently, there are some issues with the Java challenges and the Code Checker engines. I'm certain the Support Team is working hard and fast to fix the problem!

For the time being, I suggest continuing on with the course (if you'd like) by navigating over the challenge using the buttons in the progress bar above the video window.

Just make sure you come back later to complete the challenge so you receive full credit and the badge for the course. Hopefully everything gets up and going smoothly soon.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:

Thanks for taking time to reply me back Jason and yes I tried even fixing the code and compiling and still didnt work. It was driving me nuts!! One of the member advised the same as yourself that something wrong with Treehouse back end. I really appreciate your help and taking time to read my question.
