The issue is that you don't have parentheses following the equals method, you always have to add parentheses after a methods name when you call it. And the value you pass it ("No" in this case) goes inside of those parentheses.

Like this:

String response;
do {
  response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
}while(response.equals("No")); // Added parentheses around "No"
