I checked all this and I still have the wrong answer even after seeing all the examples

console.printf("%s really %s this coding exercise.", name, pastTenseVerb);

You just need to use string placeholders properly. After this "%s really %s this coding exercise." you need to add comma and point to the variables with right order.
