You need to follow exactly what the challenge tells you to do. It wants "What day is it?", not "what day is it?". It's case sensitive, be careful of it.

var answer = prompt("What day is it?");

Hi there, Zardasht Hama salih ! These challenges are very strict and they expect everything to match up to the letter. This includes spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and even spacing. The challenge asks you to prompt the user with "What day is it?", but you have your prompt with "what day is it?". Note the capitalization on the word "What". Changing the lower case "w" to an uppercase "W" causes this to pass step 2.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
