They wanted you to place the last task outside of the do while loop to indicate that the user passed the test. The code below works and it has the console.printf formatted correctly.

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response;
boolean isInvalidWord;

do {
response = console.readLine("do you understand do while loops?   ");  
  isInvalidWord = (response.equalsIgnoreCase("no"));

  if (isInvalidWord) {
  console.printf("try again");
  }
} while(isInvalidWord);

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