Hi Basel,

There are a few extra white spaces in your code which is causing the issue.

  • The first one is the space before your first name in the interpolated string name
  • The second is the greeting constant between the close paren and name
  • You can also remove the semicolons as they are not needed. Swift will compile just fine with them though.
let name = "Basel"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"

Hope this helps ?

Your code doesn't pass... :)

There is an extra () in the code... Hint hint :wink:
