Import request from Flask. Then update the index view to return "Hello {name}", replacing {name} with a name argument in the query string.

Hi there, senay yakut! The challenge isn't asking you to make a second @app.route. Instead, it's asking you to use the request object and specifically request.args.get() to get the name that was sent in. I highly suggest taking a look at 2:42 of this video for a clear-cut example of what it's expecting.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
