But the Challenge clearly asking for if statement. I even checked with comments with people who stuck with this challenge. The correct code provide was the same as mine, yet the challenge doesn't accept my answer. What I am missing ???

Your answer is correct, but you indent your if statement , you shoudn't do that. favorite_color = input("What is your favorite color? ") if favorite_color == "blue": print("You must love the sky!")
