its working in Xcode why is it not working here

my code works in Xcode and prints out exactly the example. Am I doing something wrong?

// Enter your code below
let name = "Chris"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
let finalGreeting = "\(greeting). How are you?"

Hi Chris,

The code works in Xcode, because there is nothing wrong with the syntax. However, it is not what the challenge is asking for. Task 2 explicitly states to

concatenate the value of greeting with the string literal " How are you?".

but you are using interpolation. Once you change that, the challenge will pass.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:
