Show me error

Really not understanding what I have done wrong here! please help.

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

it show me error that "Make sure you are passing name and pastTenseVerb to the console.printf in the correct order" & the question is this

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

please Help me...

Multiple.java
// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you

String name=console.readLine("Please Enter your name :");
console.printf("My name is %s",name);
String pastTenseVerb=console.readLine("Enter the Past Tense Verb :");
console.printf("%s",pastTenseVerb);
console.printf(" %s really %s this coding exercise",name,pastTenseVerb);

Try commenting out lines 4 and 6 to see if that helps. I don't think those two lines are really necessary. The challenges can sometimes be picky like that.

Make sure you are passing name and pastTenseVerb to the console.printf in the correct order

Thanks it works....
