Many thanks.
I think the compiler of this website has some problems about checking code syntax.

I completed the exercise but didn't need a few of the instructions to complete it. I'm not sure if I did the code incorrectly or if there is a bug in the exercise. I added sort(\$bffs); and count(\$bffs); but it worked correctly without them. Here it is:

<?php
\$bffs = array();
array_push(\$bffs, "Amy");
array_push(\$bffs, "Thomas");
array_push(\$bffs, "Chase");
sort(\$bffs);
count(\$bffs);
\$winner = strtoupper(\$bffs[rand(0,2)]);
print \$winner;
?>
