it seems like it is right but keeps following with error

branching.py
favorite_color = input("What is your favorite color?  ")
    if favorite_color == "blue":
        print("You must love the sky!")

Hi Reginald,

Your code is correct, except for the indentations.
Python is very indent specific. With that in mind, when you indent a line, you are indicating that it belongs inside a code block under the above line.

Here you have indented the if statement. The first line is declaring and assigning a variable, so it cannot take a code block. So, the if statement should start at the same indent as the first line. The indenting of the print statement is correct as it should be inside the if statement.

Nice work! :) :dizzy:
