I don't know what I am doing wrong. I am being asked to use the prompt() method to ask "what day is it?" & store in var

and store in var message. I am writing var answer = prompt("what day is it?");

what am i missing?

scripts.js
var answer = prompt("what day is it?");

Those challenges are so picky!

So apparently the challenge wanted the prompt to be "What day is it?" (with a capital "W"), but you wrote "what day is it?" (with a lower-case "w").

that's right capital the first word.

var answer = prompt("What day is it?");
