print ("Wow you are {}! If you are confident with your reading ....".format(age))

I don't think you get the same thing. Check just before the "!" on the lines without the ">>>". See my output below:

age = 10 print ("Wow you are {}! If you are confident with your reading ....".format(age)) Wow you are 10! If you are confident with your reading .... print ("Wow you are {}! If you are confident with your reading ....") Wow you are {}! If you are confident with your reading ....
