Hi Susmita,

Hopefully the below will help, I will add some further info as well:

//Show Prompt Window and store value

//The name entered will be stored in the 'fullName' variable

var fullName = prompt("What is your full name?");

//Select Input with the id of #fullName

//We then select the HTML element with the #fullName ID and store this for later use

var $input = $('#fullName');

//Insert value into full name input

//We now have the Name and the Input element that we want to update, so we add the .val() function and pass in the fullName variable


//A good test to help with debugging is console.log(), I would recommend adding this to local tests and using the Console in Chrome Inspector, you can pass in a variable and see what information it contains.

Hope this helps,
