'Create a new variable named favorite_color. Assign your favorite color to the variable.'

Think of a variable as a placeholder that stores values. In your case, your variable name should have been called 'favorite_color' and since color is most likely a string, it would look something like this...

favorite_color = (fill in the blank as if it's a string)

Hope this helps!

Try this:

h = 'hello'
