Heya Akio Ito, your code looks great! :D

There are just a couple of typos that are causing your code to fail for the challenge. Right now you have 'prereg' written with a G rather than prereq with a Q. Once you correct those 'g's to 'q's that should solve the challenge. Nice job!

Haha! Of course, a typo error. Thank you so much!
