Why challenge fail when I use print instead of printf?

Hence I just want to print the string inside " ", not any format here, so I think print should work. But it didn't, can someone explain it?

The Console class does not have a method named "print". But "printf" can be used to output a plain string.

See the Console page of the Java manual for more details.

Hey Hai Phan!

print() is not a method inside the Console Class. printf is the primary method for printing. There is also System.out.println(), but I don't think you have gotten to that yet.
