it doesn't ask you to log anything to the console. the string they are asking you to prompt with needs to be exact, so you need to capitalize the W.

Hey Muna,

While the code is correct syntactically, it's not exactly what the challenge asks for. It is looking for the string "What day is it?" with an upper-case "W". Challenges are very picky, so if you just change your lower-case "w" to an upper-case one, the task will pass.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:
