Mate the question was to defined a variable of type string as name and then assign it with your own name.

String name="Shekhar Shah";

It will create a variable of type String which has is called name and it has your name stored in it. Strings are a data-type that can store all characters be it alphabet characters or numbers in the next videos you will learn more about other data-types until then enjoy with String.

Hope this helps

// Step 1
String firstName = "Joe Bloggs";

// Step 2
console.printf("<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!");

// Step 3
console.printf("%s can code in Java!", firstName);
