You've got the correct code, but you also have some extra things that the challenge is not expecting. In particular:

  • the instructions don't ask for an alert that says "Begin program"
  • the instructions don't ask for a console.log that says 'I am Programming'

Just remove these extra items and you will pass the challenge.

Thank you for the help!
