prompt("what day is it?")

I have no idea why this isn't passing! As far as I am aware I'm coding this correctly:

var answer = prompt("what day is it?");

Help!

scripts.js
var answer = prompt('what day is it?');

Hi Brittany,

I think it is as simple as the first letter being in caps... 'W' vs 'w'. Try :

var answer = prompt('What day is it?');

Totally understand, when they check for answers they should check .toLowerCase(). :)
