You are close. The syntax on the print arguments are incorrect.

  • The word β€œpink” should be replaced with the name of the variable you created in task 1
  • the text after the variable should be wrap in ” ” marks.
  • The arguments should be separated by + to concatenate them together, or use a str.format() statement an f-string to format the arguments.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

favorite_color = "pink"
print("the color {} is my favorite color".format(favorite_color))
