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("name");
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter a pastTenseVerb:  ");
console.printf("%s was very %s", name, pastTenseVerb);

I see, your problem is on the 3/3 code challenge for the Multiple Format Strings challenge. Just change "was very" to "really" on your printf statement, and it should pass you for all 3 challenges. The code challenges can be very picky sometimes so be sure to read the instructions very carefully and if you get an error on a snippet of code that you believe is correct, read the error message because it often tells you what you did wrong.

// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you.
String name = console.readLine("name");
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter a pastTenseVerb:  ");
console.printf("%s really %s", name, pastTenseVerb);  //just edit your printf statement, and you will pass all 3 code challenges.

Also, just for future reference, to help you quicker and more effectively you should be more explicit/direct regarding your issue. Just pasting a code snippet and saying something like "please help me" isn't very specific, thus making it harder for others to help you figure out and solve your problem.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
