Hi, Kindly help me check my code ... something is not right but I can't see it. Thanks

OK, now use .format() on the string "Treehouse loves {}" to put your name into the placeholder. Assign this to the variable subject (so start with subject =).

You do not need to print() anything.

strings.py
name = "Osemudiamen"
subject = "Treehouse loves {}.format('Osemudiamen')"

Your issue is the closing " in your string formatting and what you are referencing in the format(). Try the below:

name = "Osemudiamen"
subject = "Treehouse loves {}".format(name)
