What is wrong with my code?

Its just asking to make a normal prompt question and sign it to a var named answer, right?

var answer prompt('What is the best programming language?');
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

You are missing the = sign right after the variable name. var answer =

You forgot your equals sign.

var answer = prompt("What is the best programming language?");
