Build a Quiz Challenge (Arrays, Loops) - can't get questions to print

I can't even get my questions to print using the prompt.

``` this is JavaScript

function print(message) { document.write(message); }

var quiz [ ["What is the capital of Florida?", "Tallahassee"], ["What state has Devil's Tower in it?", "Wyoming"], ["What state has the largest coastline?", "Alaska"], ["What state is furthest east?", "Maine"] ] var correctAnswers = 0; var question; var answer; var response;

for ( var i = 0 ; i < quiz.length ; i += 1 ) { question = quiz[i][0]; answer = quiz[i][1]; response = prompt(question); }

It looks like you're missing an equal sign (=) after "var quiz".

Also, it looks like you tried to quote your code but you didn't have the first line quite right:

  • ``` this is JavaScript :point_left: didn't work, has extra words and spaces
  • ```javascript :point_left: this should work
  • ```js :point_left: so will this
