The code you have written is absolutely correct.

The point of task was to use a variable called TAG instead of using the String "TreehouseActivity" directly as the parameter in the Log.d () method. This will make sure that for subsequent Log.d() uses, you don't have to type the String again and again. Moreover in future if you have to change the Activity name to say, "MyTreehouseActivity", just need to change only at one place.
