Didn't get the expected response

For some reason, I am getting an error message that says, "Bummer! Didn't get the expected response". I am not sure why I am getting this error. How do I fix this?

from flask import Flask
from flask import request

app = Flask(__name__)

def index(name='World'):
    name = request.args.get('name', name)
    return 'Hello, {}!'.format(name)

You are very close. The challenge is picky about expected strings. In this case you've added punctuation: a comma and an exclamation point. Remove these and your code will pass.
