What is wrong with this?

Can someone tell me what is missing here? I keeps saying it is incorrect

app.js
var player = 'jasmine';
index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="app.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

It could be that you've written 'jasmine', rather than 'Jasmine'. Little small quirks like that can be annoying, but they're important because a lowercase and uppercase "j" are two different things to the machine.

The challenge requires a capital 'J' in 'Jasmine' -

var player = 'Jasmine';

Happy coding! :)
