How to build Exploring Android Master project or subprojectfrom the CommonsWare Community archives

I’ve been using Android Studio so I skipped over the setup and configuration of studio and emulator in the Exploring Android book. I run projects on the AVD all the time so I know it works.
I opened the cw-andexplore-master project but Studio doesn’t offer a rebuild project build option for it.
I also tried just opening T02-Project but again no way to build it.
The Rebuild project option shows just fine with the Room master. I was able to Clean and Compile(Rebuild) it just fine (didn’t actually try running it on emulator).
I’ve attached a few screenshots so you can see what I mean. Okay just found out I can only put 1 image as a new user. So showing only 1.

You imported two directory levels too high. Pick a tutorial that you want to start with (say,
T02-Project/). In there is a
ToDo/ directory. Choose that when importing via File > New > Import Project.
The Exploring Android repository is unusual, because:
- I need to show the app in various stages of completion, and
- I do not want to assume the reader is comfortable with checking out
gitbranches or tags
So, each top-level directory (e.g.,
T02-Project/) contains a copy of the actual project (
ToDo/) as of when that particular tutorial’s steps were completed.
