Dear Sukriti.

Hmm, the R-help list is really about R, and *not* RStudio.
There are RStudio community places to ask for help with the IDE,
"RStudio Desktop" I think it is called now.

Also screenshots of R console output are really not intended for
this mailing list.  Please rather send *text* to here which you
cut'n'paste (and possible re-format / clean)  from the R console.

Still taking the extra effort and deciphering your screenshot,
I see that you are using R version 4.3.1 for Windows .. which is
fine... then an  iconv() conversion error and an other error
message that "knitr" was not found; finally

[Workspace loaded from C:/WSI/.RData]

Please rename this file, C:/WSI/.RData , to something else
(do this with the file browser from Windows; outside R).

If that does not help, try to start R outside of RStudio,
and report here (*not* by a screenshot) if you still get an
If you get to the R prompt at all please also send the console
output from (typing in the R console)
  > sessionInfo()

If  R  works fine outside RStudio,  you definitely need to get
help from the RStudio community.
Hoping that helps some steps further.
