It agrees that answers are right, but when I get to the last answer it claims that the previous answer was incorrect.

Then it steps backwards step by step saying the previous one was incorrect. Then it says there's a communication error.

I've tested this in my IDE and it compiles and runs perfectly.

IO.java
// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName = console.readLine("ThandoMini");
String lastName = console.readLine("Ifani");

console.printf("Last name: %s", lastName);

String firstName = console.readLine();
String lastName = console.readLine();

console.printf("First name: %s", firstName);
console.printf("Last name: %s", lastName);
