Why my answer is wrong?

Check if each student has a GPA of 4.0.

If the student has a GPA of 4.0, use the student name variable to replace NAME when displaying the following line:

NAME made the Honor Roll

ELSE If the students GPA is not equal to 4.0, within an else block, use the student name variable to replace NAME AND the student GPA variable to replace STUDENT GPA when displaying the following line:

NAME has a GPA of STUDENT GPA

That's the problem given, but my code is wrong I don't know why, I check the output and it seems aligned with the problem, please help

<?php
$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

//Place your code below this comment
if ($studentOneGPA == 4.0){
  echo "$studentOneName made the Honor Roll\n";
} else {
  echo "$studentOneName has GPA of $studentOneGPA\n";
}

if ($studentTwoGPA == 4.0){
  echo "$studentTwoName made the Honor Roll\n";
} else {
  echo "$studentTwoName has GPA of $studentTwoGPA\n";
}
?>

Small change: Instead of has GPA it should be has a GPA.
