using stripos: starts with R

task 2 of 2 So when I change $var1 and $var2 to Rocky and Raspberry it just says Task 1 is no longer passing


$var1 = "Rocky";
$var2 = "Raspberry";
$initial = "R";

if (stripos($var1,$initial) == 0 && stripos($var2,$initial) == 0) {

    echo $var1 . " and " . $var2 . " both start with " . $initial . ".";

} else {

    echo "Either " . $var1 . " or " . $var2 . " doesn't start with " . $initial . "; maybe neither of them do.";

$var1 should be "Rocky Road"

Not really a helpful error message.

I've found that usually when you get an error saying a previous task is no longer passing that it is an error in your current task.
