Bummer! Looks like you forgot to use the %s formatter

I am not sure what is wrong here? Can someone please help me with printf?

// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you.
String name = console.readLine("Name: ");
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Verb: ");
System.out.printf("%s really %s", name, pastTenseVerb);

Nevermind, figured it out. console.printf("%s really %s this exercise", name, pastTenseVerb); is used instead of System.out.printf("%s really %s", name, pastTenseVerb);
