Solution: var player = "Jasmine";

The instructions are: "Create a player variable with the string 'Jasmine' in it."

So the variable name player will come after the keyword "var", and also be on the left side of the assignment operator ("="). And the word "Jasmine" (surrounded with quotes, and starting with a capital "J") will be on the right side.
