Linuxzoo Tutorial 3

Hi, I was going through the tutorial's on and am currently stumped on tutorial 3 question 8 soft link. Anytime I type in ln -s /home/demo/thismonth work/progs/mylink I only get the first of the 3 passed but if I remove the slash in front of home I get the first two right.

Anybody know how I can get pass this? Here is the link

Hi and welcome to LQ.
ln -s /home/demo/thismonth work/progs/mylink
And in what directory are you when you issue this command?

Question 8 is about relative paths, like ../john/doc or Documents/lists.
/home/demo is a absolute path. So not valid in the context of the question.
