my code is not working.

Error comes " non-static method printf(String, Object...) cannot be referenced from a static context."

code: import java.io.Console;

public class Introductions {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    Console console = System.console();
    // Welcome to the Introductions program!  Your code goes below here
  Console.printf("Hello, my name is Kharak.\n");
  Console.printf("Kharak is learning to write java.\n");

} }

you are using the printf method from the Console class after creating the "console" object. So use the variable name instead of the class name.

 console.printf("Hello, my name is Kharak.\n");
 console.printf("Kharak is learning to write java.\n");

See this? Console vs. console :)

Let me know if it does the trick?
