Hi there,

To pass the objective, you need to include a blank line (in this case, it will be line 16) at the end of the file. Make sure that the line is truly empty (has no whitespace--no content on the line, you'll just be able to see the line number, which will be 16), and you will have followed the proper convention of having a newline at the end of your file, and pass the objective.

Hope this helps!

To get ride white space you space to last line make sure you our at say end after your last answer is line 16 on the VERY first space on line 16 hit the delete key over and over again and then check work

I hope this help , took several hours to figure this out never saw this in the video at all, I believe just assumption (I guess) Can't wait to finish this course.

did it work? =)

Yes it surely did work Thanks CJ
