Hi mates, dont understand that … it dont run normally.


ok, yeah i have the same issue.
my code looks as such:

print "What’s your first name? "
first_name = gets.chomp

print "What’s your last name? "
last_name = gets.chomp

print "What city are you from? "
city = gets.chomp

print "What state is that city in? "
state = gets.chomp

puts “Your name is #{first_name} #{last_name}, and I’m from #{city}, #{state.upcase}.”

and when i run the program it places the first question by itself and works properly, but the moment i answer it and press return, all off my other code gets executed at once and only the answer to the state question works.

i have tried using puts as opposed to print and the result is the same.


I’m having similar problems. I think the exercises are just a little buggy. If I refresh the page, it usually starts working again - if not, I just keep refreshing until it works.
