You are very close! The if statement will execute a suite, or block of code, if the specified condition is met. You have the condition correct. The colon ā€œ:ā€ at the end of the state is a visual reminder that a block of code must follow this statement. All code statement in the block of code must be indented. The style standard is to indent 4 spaces (See PEP 8 for more info on standard styling practices.)

šŸ‘‰ Indent the print statement 4 spaces and add the quoted text string inside its parens

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
