Hi Justin. you need to correct the existing lines not making other lines, only one line you can add, to create a name variable first or ' ' around the name attribute, and inside string those _ will not change nothing. that _ it's still a string like a space between words. In 5 + "a", what you did it works but its better if you make it like:

print(str(5) + "a")

And like this you keep the old code just add a method so it can add together 2 strings. I don't want to write all the answer because this is an easy quiz but i hope you can understand. Happy coding

Second to last print, you're using two kinds of quotation marks.
