The error messages walk you through it:

1) Bummer: I do not see a period.

You are missing a period after 'PHP'

2) Bummer: You did NOT use the $fullName variable

The N in $fullName is uppercase

3) Bummer: Make sure there is a space between the fullName and the rest of the string

There should be a space before 'was'
