printing a string

how do I print a string?

Example.java
// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response = console.readLine("Do you understand while loops?");
boolean understands;
do
{response = console.readLine("Do you understand while loops?");
 understands = response.equalsIgnoreCase("no");}
 while (understands);
 console.printf("Because you said yes you passed the test!");

You can print a string inside of a string by doing "%s" inside of the string, so doing console.printf("Because you said %s you passed the test!", response); (Make sure you have the response outside of the string itself).

thank you very much
