What exactly is the error message you’re getting?

Unexpected string
“Beat around the bush”

That’s odd… any chance you can copy and paste the code here? I can try to test it out and see if I can spot the error.

sorry i copied the wrong part

Maybe it’s having problems with Beat and confusing it from. Pause for a beat ? Other than that idk . I’d suggest trying to remove Beat in Beat around the bush and see if it works

I took the beat out and nothing changed it still says unexpected string

Interestingly enough, I do get an error, but mine is the “there is a { without a }” one.

Try putting a space between the. Quotations and bracket

Can you try copy and pasting this and see if it works? I tried retyping the choices on my computer and there’s no error showing for me now.

Sorry about the spacing change; it’s easier for me to look at this way :sweat_smile:.

I think it’s bc u added the space between the quotation and bracket cuz that’s the difference I see not sure tho

Ahhh it worked !! Thank you so much for your help :pray:t4:

Thanks for the help!!

Nope, I still get an error after that. I had to completely retype it to fix.

You are very welcome! It may have something to do with the fact that you’re coding on your phone.
