This looks like it's for task 1, but it's not quite right:

  • the instructions do not ask for a constant string to be saved
  • the variable color isn't required
  • the return value of the input is what should be stored in favorite_color
favorite_color = input("What is your favorite color?  ")

When you move on to task 2, you'll add code to print the stored value to the screen.
