Output a sentence that takes both the name and past tense verb using a single statement. It should look like this:

Multiple.java
// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you.
String name = console.readLine("Enter your name:   ");

JavaTester.java:117: error: illegal character: '\u00a0' String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter an adjective: Â ");Â ^ 1 error

The variable adjective is not defined in the code. Try changing adjective to pastTenseVerb.

The format string does not match the sample output. Instead of "%s really this coding exercise %s", try "%s really %s this coding exercise".
