Learn Python 2 How do i create a variable call Ceaser? Let me know soon

It’s not in any sense my exercise.
The information you are looking for is already available to you. It is easier for you to find it than to ask someone else.
If you’re unable to find it then that’s a problem in itself because finding information is something that constantly needs to be done when programming.

If you think it’s too much of an effort to help yourself then it’s definitely too much of an effort for other people too.

Oh and, if you post on a public forum you don’t get to choose who responds or how they respond.

Something you can do though is try to convince them that you really need a bit of help. This is unconvincing! Now, it may indeed be a confusing situation, but you will very quickly resolve it by doing a web search, and if that’s the information you’re missing, then maybe that’s the help you needed.

Hi @coremaster96112,

Your original post includes a link to a thread, How to ask good questions (and get good answers). It is very well worth reading.

Included in the advice provided in that thread is the following:

If you have a question about a particular exercise, course, or resource; include a link .

Many users read the posts of those who are asking for help. If they cannot find the pertinent exercise, it is difficult for them to offer that help.

The question included in the title of your post is the following:

How do i create a variable call Ceaser?

Is that consistent with the instructions in the exercise?

It would be useful for other users to see the code that you have attempted to submit thus far. If you do post your code, be sure to format it as described in the thread about how to ask good questions.

I am not getting help from this forum my first request How do I create a variable called Caesar? Almost more than five days has already passed. It is frustrating.

Is there a lesson associated with this question?

See the discussion thread Learn Python 2 How do i create a variable call Ceaser? Let me know soon.


Yes this question is associated with Python Lesson 2 (Practice) . I am expecting this answer from forum more than 6 days. I can not go further in my education further.

Must be a lot of stress. What have you read, so far?



Link to current exercise: Strings & Console Output: Practice

The previous exercise shows us how to assign a value to a variable.

Link to previous exercise: Strings & Console Output: Strings

Review that exercise, then retry the current exercise. If your code still does not work, copy and post it here, formatted, so that we can help you effectively.

1 Set the following variables to their respective phrases:

1 Set Caesar to “Graham”

2 Set praline to “John”

3 Set. Viking to “Terea”

I can not solve this.

No, the first instruction is:

  1. Set caesar to "Graham"

Python is case-sensitive, and Codecademy is asking that the variable be named caesar, rather than Caesar.

The same issue applies to the other two variables.

As an example from the previous exercise, here’s how you would set food to "cheese":

food = "cheese"

Now, how would you set caesar to "Graham"?


Hello Glen,
I have asked the question to solve not to ask me same question to me. I need solution. Why I have approached forum to get an answer instead it is futile exercise.

  1. Set caesar to "Graham"


caesar = "Graham"

So, now how do you set praline to "John"?

The solution is similar to the previous one; just change the name of the variable and the string to assign to it. Please post your answer here; we will be happy to refine it, if necessary.

Hello appylpye,

I had done the same answer previously and did it again after your email showing instruction but still showing syntax error.


Please copy and post all of the code that was in the editor when the SyntaxError occurred. Without our seeing that code, we cannot help you determine the cause of the problem.

Hello appylpye,
Thanks for your prompt reply. I corrected my error in editor page. I was typing print before caesar = “Graham”. Now further exercise Escaping characters Lesson 2 . ‘There’ s a snake in my boot !’ I tried several times but it shows syntax error. Also in editor page line 3 ‘This isn’t flying, this is falling with style!’ also shows syntax error. Line 3 is already printed in the lesson. Could you help me through?

You are given this:

'This isn't flying, this is falling with style!'

It raises a SyntaxError because the single quote character within that attempt at a string is the same character as the single quote characters that are meant to delimit the beginning and the end of it. Python interprets that single quote inside as a delimiter that terminates the string, however, it then finds that there are characters following the quote that don’t make syntactic sense.

One way to fix this is to place a \ character just before the single quote that is within the purported string. This indicates to the Python interpreter that the single quote is not a delimiter, but is instead to be included as part of what then becomes a genuine string. Be sure to use a backslash rather than a forward slash.

Following is a shorter, but similar example.

This doesn’t qualify as a string:


This does qualify as a string:


Try out the exercise, and if you have trouble, post the code here, following the specifications for formatting code discussed in How to ask good questions (and get good answers).
