Using .isLowerCase() to user input variable in one line

Is it possible to do something like: var noun = (prompt("Pick a noun")).isLowerCase(); to keep your code on one line OR do you have to reassign it like: var noun = prompt("Pick a noun"); noun = noun.isLowerCase();

Hi there! I feel fairly certain you mean toLowerCase(), but yes, you could do that all on one line. Besides the function name being off you also have some unnecessary parentheses.

This is how I would write it:

var noun = prompt("Pick a noun").toLowerCase();

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
