The default Spanish(Argentina) currency format had this wierd space between $ and the number,so I can't pass the prepareSubmission.gradle build. Changing currency format in Windows control panel didn't work. And Yes The Question I post in the actual code challenge section got no response, so I came here.

(P.S I 'm saying wierd space because adding space in the MainTest didn't work)

It's ($--> <--15,48) not a "space" it's something called "U+00A0 : NO-BREAK SPACE [NBSP]"

"First is $1.00 (USD) which is $ 15,48 (Argentine Peso)",

"Second is $2.00 (USD) which is $ 30,96 (Argentine Peso)"

To fix, replace the NBSPs with empty strings in the return statement of the argentineCurrencyFormatter function.

return String.format("%s (%s)",

Is that a bug in the excercise?

Yes. I think it is a bug.
