Hi there,

It looks like you’re assigning the incorrect value to the variable favorite_color. For task one of two, you have just one line of code where you assign the result of input() to favorite_color.

The video prior to this code challenge gives examples of this very task, which can help you.

Nathan

Task 1

favorite_color = input("What is your favorite color?")

Task 2

favorite_color = input("What is your favorite color?")
print("The color {} is a great color!".format(favorite_color))
