Hi Geet, I have no idea why it would be saying that, but I think it's most likely because you removed the first echo statement above the //Place your code below this comment.

The value for the month that you are looking for is F, not m, and make sure to call of it inside one date function, as I think trying to concat the values together won't be accepted by the engine (even though it displays what is required).

<?php
echo 'Today is ';
//Place your code below this comment
echo date('F d, Y');
