Stuck in GitHub Actions: Continuous Integration first step

I am in first step of course of Continuous Integration. Topic name is [Use a templated workflow]. I can create workflow. I am also able to commit it. But it’s not allowing me to merge. Not sure what is the reason. And it’s not allowing me to go next steps. Even I

have checked with older issues but they are not like mine one. Any answers will be appreciated.I have attached screenshot too.

I experienced the same issue as described by @smita-lab. I updated the Branch Protection rule by unchecking the “Require approvals”. Even though this allowed me to merge the pull request, the bot still did not respond. After completing the merge, there was still no response from the bot.

I CANNOT progress until this obstacle is corrected. Please help!
