There are a few issues here:

  • the code references "Console" (capital "C") but the provided object is named "console" (lower case)
  • the code uses angle brackets(< >) where the syntax requires parentheses (( ))
  • variables cannot be referenced by their contents (Sharan) but must be referenced by name (firstName)
  • the instructions say to print not just your name, but also the words " can code in Java!"
