Hi Diwakar,

Your logic is correct, however there are two syntax errors in your code.

First, the 'w' in Console.Write() needs to be capitalized.

Secondly, it looks like you copy and pasted the "Yay!" from the challenge description directly into your code.

If you click the 'Preview' button, you'll see that the compiler has encountered some unexpected characters. Often, when copying and pasting text from other sources, certain characters will not be valid. In this case, the copied and pasted double quote is not the same character as a regular double quote that you'd type directly in the text editor.

You can even notice the difference in the syntax highlighting:

Console.write(β€œYay!”); //  Incorrect

Console.Write("Yay!");  // Correct

If you fix those two things then it should pass.
