Hi there,

You want to pass two things into the Log.d. First is the TAG itself, and second is the message stipulated in the challenge, "Activity created!". So, pass TAG in, then separate the next message with a comma and put the string message after the comma.

That looks like:

Log.d(TAG, "Activity created!");

I hope that helps,
