Hey, Task 1 is asking you to simply make a variable called favorite_color and set equal to your favorite color. Like so,

favorite_color = 'yellow'

Next, it is asking you to use the variable in a sentence.

favorite_color = 'yellow'
print('The color ' + favorite_color +' is my favorite!')

Hope this helps!

This answer is very different than the "hint" given.
