Hello Mr_Murphy,

Unfortunately I can’t see if your indentations are right, but assuming they are:

In the above you are comparing char to an empty string, not to a space character.
Hint in the questions they mention: an empty space (' ').

I’ve edited your code for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (').
