My code seems to work, but the test doesn't pass

What’s happening:

I have this code for my myApp.js file on

const express = require("express");
const app = express();
const homePath = `${__dirname}/views/index.html`;
const assetsPath = `${__dirname}/public/`;

app.get("/", (req, res) => res.sendFile(homePath));

app.use("/public", express.static(assetsPath));
console.log("process.env:", process.env);
app.get("/json", (req, res) => {
  const message = "Hello json";
  const messageUpper = message.toUpperCase();
  if (process.env.MESSAGE_STYLE === "uppercase") {
    res.json({"message": messageUpper});
  } else {
    res.json({"message": message});

And when I go to /json in my browser I can see the expected JSON object. But the test doesn’t pass. I don’t get why.
