Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java IO

Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing.

Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing.

// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName=console.readLine("first name");
String LastName=console.readline("lastName");

You have a few different issues in this challenge:

Firstly, you should not have any arguments inside the parentheses of the readLine methods. Secondly, you have written the method readline instead of readLine in the second statement. Finally, you have written the variable LastName when you should have used lastName (note: this is not actually a 'real' error as Java would process this variable name without any problem but the instructions are very picky and will not pass the challenge if you do not follow them exactly).
