let name = "Pasan" let greeting = "Hi there," + "(name)"

let finalGreeting = "(greeting).How are You?"

// Enter your code below

let name = "Pasan"
let greeting = "Hi there," + "\(name)"

let finalGreeting = "\(greeting).How are You?"

1 Answer

There are two issues with your code.

  1. The greeting constant is expected to be an interpolated string, meaning there is no need for the + operator.


The finalGreeting constant is expected to be a concatenated string, meaning you do need to use the + operator to concatenate the greeting constant with "How are you?"

let name = "Pasan"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)."

let finalGreeting = greeting + " How are you?"
