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);

  Hi guys,

When I try running the above code in the console I get the following error.

console.printf("They are always %s %s.\n",adverb,verb);

 Can someone  please point out where I may going wrong.

Your code looks fine for me. Please make sure after the console statement. there isn't any unwanted statement and the brackets are properly added. if issue still exists, please share the whole coding part. Thanks.

Thanks Saravanan,

I'll double check the code for unwanted statements and missing brackets.
