In this example they are asking you to define two different String Variables.

The noun in the name variable, so it would something like String name = ""; and put whatever you want the name to be set to between the quotes.

The second part is it is asking for a past tense verb, let's use enjoying for example String pastTense = "enjoying";

Once those are declared you'll call the printf method from the console.

It will look something like console.priftf("%s is really %s this coding exercise\n", name, pastTense);

This line will pass in the values that you have defined in your variables into the string at the places where the %s identifier was used.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions.
