Not quite sure what you are asking, but if the issue is that you are not getting the variable favorite_color in your sentence it is because you need to utilize concatenation (which is just a fancy word for connecting your string with the variable). So it would look something like this.

favorite_color = "yellow" print("The color " + favorite_color + " is my favorite!")

print() --> will display your message

The quotes surrounding "The color" and "is my favorite" will bring together the whole sentence with your variable.
