index.php
<?php
$firstName="Rasmus";
$lastName="Lerdorf";  
$fullName=  $firstName    .    $lastName;
//Place your code below this comment

?>

in PHP u need to use “” around to combine variables. for example : $fullName = “$firstName $lastName”

you can also use the . operator which function like +: $fullName= $firstName . " " . $lastName

Thanks I have noticed
