When I copy/paste your code exactly as is and put it in the challenge, it passes all three steps. I'd say relaunch the challenge an copy what you have here. Remove everything in the challenge, and then paste. Then do check work. If this still fails, you may have to contact Treehouse support. Good luck! :smiley:
