Java Java Basics Using your New Tools Coding the Prototype

I copied and pasted and did it exactly like he did but it only outputs the name and adjective.

It won't ask me for any input past adjective, not sure what to do. If anyone can tell me what I did wrong. This is what I inputted: String name = console.readLine("Enter a name: "); String adjective = console.readLine("Enter an adjective: "); String noun = console.readLine("Enter a noun: "); String adverb = console.readLine("Enter an adverb: "); String verb = console.readLine("Enter a verb ending with -ing: ");

  console.printf("Your TreeStory:\n------------\n");
  console.printf("%s is a %s %s.", name, adjective, noun);
  console.printf("They are always %s %s.\n" , adverb, verb);

and the output I got is:
