Trailhead challenge-The 'AccountTrigger' Trigger does not appear to be working correctly. Inserted records did not have matching BillingState and ShippingState values.

I'm trying to complete this trailhead challenge "Understand Execution Context". And getting this error message.
trigger AccountTrigger on Account (before insert) {
if(Trigger.isBefore && Trigger.isInsert)


This is the trigger i'm using. Please advise.

Hi Vidya, can you show me the CreateAccounts method?
According to the message the shippingState has to be equal to BillingState, please verify this.

Do you have State and Country picklist enabled? In that case you should use BillingStateCode and ShippingStateCode.
Also validate if you always have a value in ShippingState and BillingState. You could use a system.debug to check the value.
