The instructions ask for specific strings to be made in each case, but they don't ask for any newlines to be inserted into (or after) the strings.

Just remove the newlines and you should pass the challenge.

I can confirm that removing the newlines and collapsing multiple spaces was all I did to this code to get it to pass!
