I can not figure out what I am doing wrong here, can someone please help me?

// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you.

String name = console.readLine("Enter your name: ");

String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter a past tense verb:  ");

consloe.printf("%s really %s this coding exercise, name, pastTenseVerb");
  • spelling mistake on console
  • parameters should probably be outside the quotation marks, like: console.printf("%s really %s this coding exercise", name, pastTenseVerb);
