Hi Fidelis,

Take a look at your console.log statements. The first one is the opposite of what the challenge is asking for, so take out the "not". The second should be what you currently have in the first statement (with the "not"). Hope this helps.

Hi Fidelis,

Assuming you got the string statements correct now, you probably need to take the space off the end of your second string statement. Sometimes the checker is very sensitive and requires the answer to be exactly right. If you have further problems, post your new code and I'll have a look at it. I did redo the challenge myself with your code corrected except for the space, and that extra space caused the challenge to not pass. Taking it out, it passed. Hope this works for you.
