Hi there! Your code is functional, but challenges are very strict and generally must match to the letter. This includes spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and even spacing! In this case, you have forgotten to capitalize the "w" in "what". It should be:

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

If I simply make that teensy adjustment, your code passes!

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
