Instead of print("The color", "input", "is a great color!") , you need to use the variable favorite_color where you currently have written "input".

favorite_color = input("What is your favorite color?  ")
print("The color", favorite_color, "is a great color!")

You can also do it like this:

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

Both of these two solutions will solve the challenge :D
