Use the document.write() method to write the variable answer to the page.

scripts.js
var answer = (" ");

var answer = prompt("What day is it?");

var answer = ("what day is it?");
document.write("answer");
index.html

Hi Md Delowar Hossain

You're on the right track and doing great. The error message the code checker is providing (It looks like you didn't give the document.write() method the answer variable.) is giving you a very strong clue as to what is wrong.

You have surround the variable name with quotation marks. When you do this, it turns it into a string and is now passing in the string literal "answer" instead of the value that is stored inside the answer variable. Once the quotes are removed, then the variable's value will be use.

Otherwise, nice work! :) :dizzy:
