Hi Davor Rapic,

You are almost there, you just need to use d instead of j. The difference is that j will output 1, 2, 3, 4... and d will output 01, 02, 03, 04... and the tasks asks for specific format Today is July 04, 2016. I hope it helps:)

tnx, i didn't see the difference becouse it was greater then 09.
