It looks like you haven't applied all the hints I gave you in your previous question yet.

Here are the ones you missed, and one new one:

  • :point_right: the code you wrote for task 1 should remain, and the task 2 code is added beneath it
  • :point_right: C# is case-sensitive, so the keyword "string" must be in all lower case
  • :point_right: don't put quotes around variable names (quotes are for creating a string literal)
  • the variable name goes right after the word "string"
  • :point_right: the equal sign ("=") should go after the variable name

Hello there, In C# firstly you need to write variable type then variable name variableType variableName=Method to read the value from the key board

String bookTitle = System.Console.ReadLine();

the read line method will not take any parameters.
