This caused no errors in VS?

I would have expected you to have issues with:

  • the mismatched quotes on the line that writes "Yay!"
  • spelling "RearLine" instead of "ReadLine"

Also, you don't need to prefix the strings with "$" since no interpolation is being performed.

:warning: Be careful about testing a challenge in Visual Studio. Beyond just making sure things compile, challenges test for meeting specific objectives. In this case, even if spelled correctly, calling ReadLine after the output would prevent the program from ending and cause the challenge to fail.
