Here is the solution my friend (note the regular expression):

import java.util.Scanner;
import java.util.regex.Matcher;
import java.util.regex.Pattern;

public class Pr_06_StartsAndEndsWithCapitalLetter {
    public static void main(String[] args) {

        Scanner scanner = new Scanner(;
        String input = scanner.nextLine();

        Pattern pattern = Pattern.compile("\\b([A-Z])+([a-zA-Z]+)?([A-Z])\\b");
        Matcher matcher = pattern.matcher(input);

        while (matcher.find()) {

Read here more: and note that \b is a word boundary. It matches the beginning and ending of a word
