You need to capitalize the C in console, this is a java keyword/variable and based on those conventions you must spell them exactly the way they are shown, including the capitalization.

Hi there,

you don´t need this code block:

public class Name {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    Console console = System.console();

it is already defined for you ...

And put the second " after the string formatter %s, so the comipler knows where to "inject" your value of the firstName

The code can look like this:

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console

    String firstName = "Senthilkumar";
    console.printf("Hello my Name is %s", firstName);
