unable to run the code

import java.io.Console;

public class Name {
  public static void main(Strings[] args)
    String firstName = "jyoti";

Hi Sunil,

You don't need the whole main method. The challenge asks you to define a String variable named firstName that contains your name. So your line of code below is all that's needed:

String firstName = "jyoti";
