Can you provide a little more? What lesson (language) are you working on and what does your code look like?

Hi Dave This what im doing but comes out wrong. <script> var first = ["The", "quick", "brown", "fox", "jumps"] var second = ["over", "the", "lazy"]; var saying = first.concat(second,"dog");

  var shortSaying = saying.slice(1, 2, 3);   // but says wrong ?

  var sayingString = saying;

Based on the code you provided, the slice returns the word 'quick'. You want it more like var shortSaying = saying.slice(1,4); I don't know what the third number is for...the slice syntax is 'string.slice(start,end)'. That is probably where you are running into an issue.

Thanks Dave that helped i didn't remove the "var" thanks again took me a 1 hour and fell a sleep haha.
