Kelly, You can type your answer into the lighter grey area. If you click on that and your cursor still not appear, you should maximize your window screen. Sometimes, with the smaller windows, you can't take the challenge. Hope this helps!

You will type your code directly into that black screen space. Click on it, and a cursor should appear, allowing you to follow the instructions and enter your code! When finished with a particular task, click the "Check Work" button to submit it.

Hope this helps!


Thank you both! I got it to work. :)
