Hi, Arvind Krishna! You are terribly close. Assuming I called the function and sent in "Arvind" it would return "HelloArvind", but it's expecting "Hello Arvind". You need an extra space in between the "Hello" and the name.

So instead of:

val = "Hello" + name

You would need:

val = "Hello " + name  # see the space after Hello?

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
