Hi Wesley,

In the first challenge: Remember that words that are assigned to variables are strings, so they need quotations around them ("red" in this case).

In the second challenge: You need to print the statement in the form given, or it won't pass. In this case you have two words (which are a string), then the variable name (which is not a string), then the remainder of the sentence (also a string) each separated by commas.

If you're still confused, review the video "Variables" right before the "Code Challenges" explanation (especially around the seven minute mark).

Hope this helps!
