Your answer is correct. I just did the quiz again to double-check and everything was perfect. So I think your problem may be in the punctuation. Check you are adding what is exactly need it. For instance, the last semicolon is already there, so when you're typing

the_post()

you don't need to add the semicolon because in that case, it will cause an error.
