Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype Looping until the value passes

Java Basics Last Challenge

I need help please.

Example.java
// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response;
 response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?  ");
String response;

do {
  response = console.readLine("Enter no:  ");


} while response;

What is it wanting you to do?

To keep looping to response as long as no is typed. I think.

Ok without testing it first issue is the second reinitializing of the variable response.

Also your while loop is written wrong. Try something like this(did not test it)....

        String response;

        response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?  ");


        while (!response.equals("no")){
          response = console.readLine("Enter no:  ");
        }
