Manifest Merger failed with multiple errors in Android Studio

So, I am a beginner into Android and Java. I just began learning. While I was experimenting with Intent today, I incurred an error.

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugManifest'.
> Manifest merger failed with multiple errors, see logs


I found some solutions here and tried to implement them, but it did not work.

This is my build.gradle :

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
compileSdkVersion 23
buildToolsVersion "23.0.0"

defaultConfig {
applicationId "com.example.rohan.petadoptionthing"
minSdkVersion 10
targetSdkVersion 23
versionCode 1
versionName "1.0"
}
buildTypes {
release {
minifyEnabled false
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
}
}
}

dependencies {
compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.0.0'
}


This is my AndroidManifest :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>




package="com.example.rohan.petadoptionthing" >

<application

android:allowBackup="true"
android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
android:label="@string/app_name"
android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
<activity
android:name=".MainActivity"
android:label="@string/app_name" >
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
</intent-filter>
</activity>

<activity android:name=".Second"
/>

<activity android:name=".third"/>
<activity android:name=".MainActivity"/>


</application>




This is my first week with coding, I am sorry if this is a really silly thing. I am really new to this and did not find any other place to ask. Sorry if I broke any rules

Answer

Remove <activity android:name=".MainActivity"/> from your mainfest file. As you have already defined it as:

 <activity
        android:name=".MainActivity"
        android:label="@string/app_name" >
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
        </intent-filter>
    </activity>

So, Manifest file showing ambiguity.
