You did not use either the "title" or the "description" variables.

It looks like you copied the content of these variables into the places where the variables should be used.

You may have been misled by the instructions talking about "variable value", but remember that it also says "Using the Razor syntax". And in Razor syntax, the value would be represented by the variable name preceded by an at-sign ("@").

thank you for your response.
