I can't figure out how to do this the only wires I have are Jumper Wire and M-F 20 Pin DuPont Wire.

    In this case it is simple. You don't need any wires if those components have leads on them. Put one lead from the resistor in the A0 pin and the other lead in one of the Ground pins. Then to similar for the LDR only use A0 and the 5v pin. If the two leads don't fit together then you may need to twist them together so you can insert one but still make sure both make contact. – Delta_G Aug 31 '20 at 4:30

    @Delta_G - this looks like an answer. Please convert it into an answer, and then it can be accepted and voted on. Comments under questions are for clarifying the question. – Nick Gammon Aug 31 '20 at 6:34

    I’m thinking this just isn’t the site for me. You want me to make it an answer. Just two days ago I got berated by someone else for putting something like this as an answer and they said I should have made it a comment so they could close the question. I’m confused. I don’t get it. And every time I ask for clarification nobody answers. What the hell man. Don’t put an answer or a comment. What the f do you want? – Delta_G Aug 31 '20 at 12:30

    Actually NG I’d appreciate if you don’t talk to me. I got nothing to say to you. Why don’t you just leave me alone please. – Delta_G Aug 31 '20 at 12:32

    I have a personal issue with nick and I don’t wish to interact with him. My beef is with the site because it seems like no matter what I do someone is telling me input it in the wrong place. Just a couple of days ago I got berated for answering a question like this and told I should have just answered in comments. That’s my confusion. I just don’t know why you guys want it in comments sometimes and as answers sometimes. And when I ask I never get a response. I’d like someone to explain that for me. – Delta_G Aug 31 '20 at 12:57

If you don't have a breadboard, get one. It's a board with lots of holes in it that you can use for experimenting.

Something like this:

As Delta_G said in their comment, you could wire a circuit as simple as yours by just putting the wires from the components directly into the terminals on the Arduino, but that quickly becomes impractical. Get a breadboard and learn how to use it.
