C# Escape sequence Quiz

For quiz, I cut this code out and it is doing exactly what I am being asked to do, but I am still wrong. Why?

using System;

class Program
    static string Quote(string uno)
        return $"\"  {uno}  \"";

    // YOUR CODE HERE: Define a Quote method!

    static void Main(string[] args)
        // Quote by Maya Angelou.
        Console.WriteLine(Quote("When you learn, teach. When you get, give."));
        // Quote by Benjamin Franklin.
        Console.WriteLine(Quote("No gains without pains."));

If you check the preview you will see the issue is the spaces between the quotes and the text. Remove the spaces and you are good. The test shows:

" Patrick, I don't think wumbo is a real word. "

instead of

"Patrick, I don't think wumbo is a real word."
