For some reason this code snippet is not going through. I did put the snippet in Xcode and it worked fine.

let name = "Milan" let greeting = "("Hi there"), (name)" let finalGreeting = "(greeting). ("How are you?")"

// Enter your code below

let name = "Milan"
let greeting = "\("Hi there"), \(name)"
let finalGreeting = "\(greeting). \("How are you?")"

String interpolation is usually used as an easy way to include variables or constants within a string.

Its better to write something like this:

let name = "Milan"
let greetingText = "Hi there";
let greeting = "\(greetingText), \(name)"
let okText = "How are you?"
let finalGreeting = "\(greeting). \(okText)"

or just write the greetingText, okText normally, without interpolation.
