To meet the requirement to "continually prompt the user", the readLine function will need to be called from within the loop

And then to "continue running as long as the response is 'No'", you will need to compare the response with that word in a way that will cause the loop to end when it doesn't match.

I’ll do what I can to apply what you’ve taught. Thanks again!!!
