When I was doing the code challenge for "use and if" I used all of the hints given but it still says I have failed......

can anyone tell me what I did wrong?....

branching.py
favorite_color = input("What is your favorite color?  ")
if favorite_color == "Blue":
     print("You must love the sky!")

The instructions ask you to check if the favorite_color is equal to "blue". Notice that "blue" is spelled in all lower case, but the code above has "Blue" with a capital "B". Since the comparison is case-sensitive, these are not the same thing.

Use the spelling shown in the instructions and you should pass the challenge.
