Your query looks good.

You didn't provide a link to the challenge, but if it is this one, I pasted in your query and it passed! :+1:

One minor improvement you could make is to take advantage of the fact that your literal strings can contain more than one character:

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

But this change should not affect the output at all, and it should have worked as-is.
