How can I rename something in document.write to fit a variable named "player"? I can't seem to get this question correct

Please take a look at my code.

app.js
var player = 'Jasmine';
document.write(var player);
index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="app.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Hello! Variables need to be declared once. From then on you can use the variable, without the 'var' bit in the beginning. The variable's name is enough.

var player = 'Jasmine';
document.write(player);
