JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Capturing Visitor Input and Writing It to the Page

Challenge task 2 of 3

I've tried so many variations and I seem to be getting the answer wrong. What is the answer?

var answer = prompt; 
prompt ('what is your name?'); 
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
<script src="scripts.js"></script>

Lakshmi, you are almost there. It's just that you need to do Task 1 in one line, like this:

var answer = prompt("What day is it?")

Then write out the variable's value.

Oh right, that makes sense. Thank you!
