JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Introducing JavaScript Using the Console

I am trying to do a console.log command and the challenge is not accepting it, why?

The question is as follows: At the beginning of this script on line 9, type the code required to print 'Begin program' to the browser's JavaScript console.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
<script>
console.log(Begin program');
document.write("Welcome to JavaScript Basics");

</script>
</body>
</html>

looks like you're missing an opening single quote

console.log(Begin program');

should be

console.log('Begin program');

Thank you Andrew. I guess that's what happens when the screen is dark, your eyes are bad, and the lighting not that good.
