Task 1 passes every time I go back to it, but when I try to check my work on task 2, it says that task 1 isn't passing

Task 1 "from flask import Flask" checks out fine when I hit the "check work" button. However, when I move on to Task 2 and try to check my work, I get an error that says "Task 1 is no longer passing". I haven't changed anything in Task 1 for it to no longer be passing.

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask

app = Flask (_name_)

It's actually a problem from task 2. You only had one underscore before and after "name", while you're supposed two underscores before and after "name".

Try this:

from flask import Flask

app = Flask (__name__)
