Hi there,

It is just complaining about the lack of spacing in the string. Add a space after the comma:

let name = "Linda"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"


For added readability, I added a space either side of each equals sign too. But I don't think that affects the challenge, but the code parser prefers it.

Hi Lahiru,

Your syntax is correct, just try to add some spaces - for example, between the assignment operator and your assigned String. Actually, to pass this challenge you need to add one space between your "Hi there" and the interpolated string like so:

let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"

Hope this helps! ✊
