what's meant by insert a linebreak - is that just inserting a blank line like this System.out.println(); ??

"Insert a line break" means you've come to the end of a line and you want to start a new one.
Why not give it a try... what do you see when you use the methods System.out.print or System.out.println ?

A "line break" means that you stop printing on the same line and go to the next line. Usually the next line is not blank, although it can be.
gives you a different result (no line break) than
(a break at the end of each printed line)??
Notice how "line break" is used in context in the
write data out
