Unable to complete challenge. Java files compiled and tested in IntelliJ and worked just fine.


I am unable to complete the challenge.

This is the error: "Bummer: Looks like you didn't present the TreeStory (3)..." However, I already added the part to present the tree story in Prompter.run method...

public void run(Template tmpl) {
    List<String> results = null;
    try {
        results = promptForWords(tmpl);

    } catch (IOException e) {
        System.out.println("There was a problem prompting for words");

    String storyResult = tmpl.render(results); // <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    System.out.printf("Your TreeStory:%n%n%s", storyResult); // <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

I think I already completed the objective because I compiled and tested the updated jave files in IntelliJ and it worked just fine.

Thank you in advance! :)

Try printing the story without formatting. (println instead of printf)
