//Use Console.WriteLine to print the contents of the firstName variable to the screen.

string firstName=System.Console.ReadLine();
firstName=System.Console.WriteLine("Enter the firstName"); //Console.WriteLine, does not meant to be saved in a variable, as it does not add value, by saving to a variable.
//btw, it is asking to print the contents, in the firstName variable, and not "Enter the FirstName"
