Challenges are extremely picky when it comes to strings, the string you type usually has to match the example message they provide to the letter.

The problem with your code specifically is that the first letter of the string is not capitalized. If you capitalize it like this:

var answer = prompt('What day is it?');

Then your code will pass the second task.
