Using the console's printf method, display a message that says, "Last name:" followed by the last name that the user...

has entered

// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName = console.readLine("Juan");
console.readLine("%s likes water\n",  firstName);
String lastName = console.readLine("Lourido");
console.readLine("What is your last name? %s",  lastName);
console.printf("What is your first name sir? %s",  firstName);
console.printf("What is your last name sir? %s",  lastName);

Hi Juan,

Try console.printf instead of console.readLine:

console.readLine("%s likes water\n", firstName)

Try the same for the last name. Regardless, I think your outputs will repeat,

I have the answer for you in case you need it, First I just wanted to give you a hint for you to figure it out. Let me know.
