This is for question 2/3 on the last Challenge of the Java Basics Course. Please tell me what is wrong with my code.

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.

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

do (response.readLine("No")) {

console.printf("Do you understand do while loops?"); }

while (response.readLine("No")) { console.prinf("Noice m8"); }

1 Answer

you don't need statement inside of parentheses in the do while loop should look like this:

do {
    //run code here and will always run at least once
} while (some condition here)

also when using console.readLine() put the question in the parentheses not the response
