Learning to describe problems is hard, but it is an important part of learning how to code.
Also, the more you say, the more we can help!

Welcome to the forum @malykahmad1122

At the beginning of your loop body, print the result of comparing char with a space (' '). Use the equality operator == for that.

  1. You need to print the comparison.
  2. The comparison is with a space, not an empty string.

Happy coding
