Hi there! You're doing great, and your logic is spot on. However, you seem to have missed the part of the instructions where they ask you to return the string. You are printing the string. It's important to note that these challenges are very exacting and instructions should be followed to the letter. Even functional code can fail if it doesn't match the precise requirements.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
