your code is correct but the quiz is case sensitive. you have Javascript but the test is asking you to have JavaScript with the S of script capitalized.

hope that helps happy coding

Like many things in programming, it's being picky about upper/lowercase. You should be comparing it to "Java*S*cript" and then it should be fine.

As the other commenters noted, it is JavaScript, which is the official name of the language. Many mistakes are case sensitive issues, so pay attention to the case.
