take the () off from around your color so that it looks like this: "blue" and dont forget to indent

it should look like the following:

favorite_color = "blue"

print("The color", favorite_color, "is my favorite!")

remember to put favorite_color outside the string for it to be called. remember that the print statement shall NOT be indented as this will cause an Indentation Error saying 'unexpected indent'.
