namespace _____ name of the namespace in following method call. Adobe.Illustrator.Canvas.Paint(); why not just Adobe?

little confused about why the answer is not just adobe and/or just illustrator for the namespace call. like it was mentioned in the preview System.Console.Write(); the system would be the namespace.

The namespace is everything other than the class and method names.

It's also the only one of the three parts that can contain a period. So in this case, "Paint" is the method, "Canvas" is the class, and everything else is the namespace.
