Concatenation with an alias

SELECT street || ", " || city || ", "|| state || " " || zip || ". " || country || AS addresses FROM addresses;

Wanting to combine each of these aliased as "addresses" but keep messing something up. I've tried to account for the commas and spaces

Any ideas?

Thanks!

There are two issues:

  • there's a stray extra concatenation operator between the last field and the AS
  • the instructions say "Alias the concatenated string as address" (singular)
