// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
console.printf("Do you understand do while loops ");
String response = console.readLine(" ");

Hi Ashan,

The first part of the question wants you to store the user's response to a question in a variable named response; that could look like:

String response = console.readLine("Do you understand while loops? ");

Your code doesn't contain that in the same line, which is why the compiler is giving you an error of You need to use console.readLine to ask 'Do you understand while loops?'.

Have a go with that code and see how you get on with the next task, which is setting up the while loop. Shout back if you need some help.
