i am unable get through the process of the SSH-key creation,below is the terminal error i am getting related the ssh-key.hope you all there try to figure this tedious quest of mine...

~/pset1/hello/ $ ssh-keygen -p
Enter file in which the key is (/home/ubuntu/.ssh/id_rsa): 

as you see it ask me for the file name but eventually i don't know the file in which the key is! because as it had not asked me for the file name to store the key while the creation. below is the terminal code view which was Generating the New SSH-key

~/pset1/hello/ $ ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -c "mygmail@gmail.com"
