It really just wants one exclamation mark, with no spaces in front or after it:

<?php

$firstName = "Mike ";
$middleName = "the ";

$lastName = "Frog";

$fullName = $firstName . $middleName . $lastName;

echo "The designer at Shirts 4 Mike shirts is named " . $fullName .  "!";

?>

thanks for you answer already got it right
