communication issue - won't let me submit my challenge - I try to reload but I get the same error message

I logged in and hit resume and it took me to the "challenge question" 1 of 2 that I already answered the last time I was in the course. I tried to answer again and hit check work, but it gave me a "OH NO Communication error". I tried the "reload" but that didn't work either.

name = "Beverly"
email_segment = "To { }.format (name)

One of your errors is apparently confusing the checker (I suspect the missing quote).

  • the challenge said "Assign this to the variable subject", but you named yours email_segment instead
  • the challenge said "use .format() on the string "Treehouse loves {}"..." but you have "To { }" instead
  • you forgot the quote mark between the brace (}) and .format
