Incorrect output

The output appears correct, but I am still receiving an error message.

$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

//Place your code below this comment

if ($studentOneGPA == 4.0) {
  echo "$studentOneName made the honor roll";
else {
  echo "$studentOneName has a $studentOneGPA";
  if ($studentTwoGPA == 4.0) {
  echo "$studentTwoName made the honor roll";
else {
  echo "$studentTwoName has a $studentTwoGPA.";

Hi there! Because it is checking the output, it must match to the letter. This includes capitalization also.

Currently your output looks a bit like this (without line breaks):

Dave has a 3.8
Treasure made the honor roll

But pay close attention to the instructions. It should look like this (again without the line breaks):

// note the addition of GPA of
Dave has a GPA of 3.8

// note the capitalization on Honor Roll
Treasure made the Honor Roll

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
