I used the right formatter still wrong

The formatter is %s really %s

// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you.
String name = console.readLine("Enter your name:  ");
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter the past tense verb:  "); 
console.readLine("%s really %s ", name, pastTenseVerb );

You have 2 problems:

-you cant use the .readLine() method to "output" the sentence you''ve been asked for

-the sentence was incomplete...you forgot to add "...this coding exercise" in the end

console.printf("%s really %s this coding exercise",name,pastTenseVerb);
