I little issue with my code in Java Basics (133 minute)

Hello, Iā€™m trying to get the correct answer for the third step from my task 3, in 133-minute Java Basics course (Challenge Task 3 of 3), but I couldn't finish. Can you help me with that?

hello, I think you got problem with console.printf you need %s String formatter , and your code can be like

String response;
boolean isNegativeAnswer;
do {
  response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
    isNegativeAnswer = (response.equals("No"));
  }  while (isNegativeAnswer);
                    console.printf("Because you said %s,you passed the test!", response);
