Hi! When using document.write() you have to include any spaces you wish to be seen in the string via the quotations as the variables won't display them. For example if you want to include an answer from a prompt in a sentence you'd do as follows:

var answer = prompt ("What is your answer?") document.write("Your answer was " + answer + ". Thanks for answering.")

This would display "Your answer was 'answer'. Thanks for answering."

Using your string to include the space and punctuation before and after the variable so on the page it make perfect grammatical sense.

Thanks Kelvin!
