TASK 2

I tried using YOUR NAME embedded in console.printf("YOUR NAME %s", firstName); String firstName="aravind"; console.printf("%s", firstName);

Name.java
// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName="aravind";
console.printf("%s", firstName);

Hi Aravind,

the code you wrote is actually completely right, but not for code challenge. The code challenge wants you to print out: Aravind can code in Java!

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName="aravind";
console.printf("%s can code in Java!", firstName);

I hope that was helpful and if you have any questions, feel free to ask me or the community :)
