Hi Sarwesh,

So you need to combine the string that you have stored in the variable name with the string "Treehouse loves " to create a sentence.

name = "sarwesh"
subject = "Treehouse loves"

To do this you can simply add the name using the '+' operator to the new string

name = "sarwesh"
subject = "Treehouse loves " + name
