Your formatting is a little off.

First, we always have to wrap our javascript around <script>//code here</script> tags.

Secondly, you'll want to follow the correct syntax of document.write() which you can learn more about here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Document/write

With those two things, it should pass the quiz
