Not sure how to reformat my code further

I am receiving an reformat error however I feel I have reformatted this fully.

Messy.java
import java.util.*;

public class Messy {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println( "five" );
        System.out.println( "one" );
        System.out.println( "six" );
        System.out.println( "four" );
        System.out.println( "two" );
        //Please comment out this line and
        //this line as well with a hotkey that does multi - line commenting
        List<String> numberWords = Arrays.asList( "six", "seven", "eight", "nine" );
        for (String numberWord : numberWords) {
            // Use the sout shortcut to write out numberWord;
            System.out.println( numberWord );
        }
    }
}

Hi there Linsey!

The task wants you to rearrange the println and add/remove so that they go from 1-5, since the List will take care of 6-9. Also you don't need to include the first line in the results.txt
