Hey jun cheng wong, you are very close!

Correct the following:

  • the second argument to request.args.get() is the default value if the searched term is not in the query string. name is not defined. Choose a defined string, or add name as a keyword parameter to index with a default value.
  • the f-string is missing its f

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
