# Querying WolframAlpha from WolframScript

Is it possible to query WolframAlpha from a wolframscript query? The following yields $Failed: wolframscript -cloud -code "WolframAlpha[\"capital of Egypt\"]"$Failed

• It seems this only doesn't work when using the -cloud option. This is consistent with CloudEvaluate[WolframAlpha["capital of egypt"]] also returning \$Failed. – Carl Lange Jun 7 '19 at 7:30
