If this is a code challenge you don't need to wrap everything the main method. You just need to variable declaration and the assignment.

You're missing the class declaration, you have the closing bracket for the class declaration but not the class itself. Since your class is called Name.java your code should look like this:

Name.java

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

public class Name { //this is the part you were missing
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        String firstName;
        firstName = "ahmad";
        System.out.println(firstName);
    }
}

I'm not sure what the challenge is asking you to do, but from what you posted, that is what is missing, everything else is good.
