Provide your code if you'd like some help. Either use Markdown or link to a snap shot of your workspace.

var answer = prompt("What day is today?");

Hi piotr krysiak,

I think this is the code you need:

var answer = prompt("What day is today?");
alert(answer);

The first line creats a dialog box and asks the question "What day is today". After the visitor answers, the value will be saved in the answer variable. After this is done you wil return the visitors feedback with an alert box;
