The challenge asks you to: "Declare a variable named firstName and initialize it to the string returned from a call to Console.ReadLine()." So to start, you need to break this into simple steps. First, declaring a variable is a fundamental skill you will need for most programming languages. This can be done, like so:
var firstName = "Chris";
To read from the console, you can use:
string userinput = Console.ReadLine();
To combine the two tasks can be done like so:
var firstName = Console.ReadLine();
