Hi there! You're doing great and I have a feeling what happened here was you got in such a flow with using readLine that you missed the part where we're not supposed to get input on the last line. We're simply supposed to print it to the screen.

If I simply change your readLine to printf on the last line, your code passes with flying colors!

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
