Sorry keyboard not working well so I will be missing out letters. Basically task 2 is so badly worded.


String firstName = console.readLine("What is your name");
String lastName = console.readLine("What is your name");
Console console.printf(firstName);

Hello, the task is pretty picky, what it is actually asking you to print is the console.printf statement with the line First name: <your name>

It should look like below.

console.printf("First name: %s", firstName);

Hope this helps, let me know if it doesn't.

Thanks I've even done basic java and I struggled with that.
