You need to check if response equals "no" ignoring the case and you need semicolon after while condition. Instead of ''equals" try to use "equalsIgnoreCase".

i think ther is no need of "equalsIgnoreCase"....

You're right, my mistake there's no need to check that, although I think it is a good practice for a real situation where an user can write 'NO' in uppercase and your program won't consider it as a valid response.
