the challenge does not ask you to print anything. use the format method in the same line where you initialize subject, but without the str, name is already a string, it doesn't need to be cast as such.

tried: name= "gaurav sharma" subject= "Treehouse loves.format(name)"

it is also failing. tried below as well which also failed: name= "gaurav sharma" subject= "Treehouse loves {}" print(subject.format(name))
