Can someone please help me with this code. I'm a complete beginner.

Could someone please show me what's wrong with my print function?

You have to write either:

print("Terrell") ---> Within brackets and double quotes


print "Terrell" ---> Without brackets, in double quotes

Hopefully I haven't done any mistake in my description ;-) Cheers K.

There's nothing wrong with your print function but if you want to pass the challenge you'll have to print out the string that it asks you to :).

If you want to print the name "Terrell," then either

print "Terrell" or print("Terrell")

will work. If you want to print the contents of a variable named Terrell, then leave out the quotes and use either

print Terrell or print(Terrell)

What you've got should work fine. What error are you getting?
