It seems you are not exactly following the instructions of the challenge.

Here's a solution:

String response;

do {
    response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
} while (response.equals("No"));

console.printf("Becuase you said %s, you passed the test!", response);

Compare your code with the above and post back if you have further queries.
