Why does my code not work in "Find the longest word in a string"?

I have tested my code and for some reason it is returning back the number 10 as max_count. It is suppose to return number 6. I’m in the wrong but I want to know why does my code not work. I noticed that it reads ‘brown fox’ as one word. Thank you so much for considering this matter.

Looks like you only reset count when the loop is at a space AND count is greater than max_count.

Next time, please post your code as text.

HI @JasonG7354 !

Welcome to the forum!

Here is how to post code to the forum to make it easier for people to assist you with challenges. Also please remember to post the challenge link too :slight_smile:

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 (’).


Oh I see! Thank you so much! I will keep that in mind.
