C# C# Basics (Retired) Console I/O Say Hello!

Writing hello to the console in C#

I'm trying to do as the exercise is telling me, I'm writing the code as follows: System.Console.Write("Hello: ");

When I check my work it tells me to look at what I wrote between the parentheses and asks if I used a double quote. I copied this from the program that I wrote along with the video, the one I wrote along with the video worked just like Jeremy's did, but now this one wont work. What's the problem?

CodeChallenge.cs
System.Console.Write("Hello: ");

System.Console.Write("Hello");

Just Like Joseph said. The challenge is asking you print "Hello", not "Hello: ". You can just copy paste "Hello" into the parentheses.

Not sure if I remember what the exercise is asking exactly but I think the problem is you have too much syntax in your string. Instead just write System.Console.Write("Hello");

Thanks guys, I don't understand why it didn't accept it the way I typed it out when the video before hand showed me otherwise.

Scott,

You're right. There should be some consistency here, but it does help teach that the challenge is looking for a specific output and putting in exactly what the previous video showed you to do isn't what it's asking you for. Anyone can copy/paste something to pass a challenge. You have to just follow the instructions. The challenge is asking for you to write "Hello" to the console.
