Bummer! In the body of switchColor, change the color of the lamp to the value provided as an argument

Not sure how to make the method conform and switch the color.

// Declare protocol here
protocol ColorSwitchable{
    func switchColor(color: Color)

enum LightState {
    case On, Off

enum Color {
    case RGB(Double, Double, Double, Double)
    case HSB(Double, Double, Double, Double)

class WifiLamp: ColorSwitchable {
    let state: LightState
    var color: Color

    init() {
        self.state = .On
        self.color = .RGB(0,0,0,0)
    func switchColor(color:Color){

Looks like the only step left is to use the switchColor function to change the color of the light. To do so, just replace your switchColor function with the following:

func switchColor(color: Color) {
     self.color = color

By implementing the required methods defined by the protocol, you've already conformed to the protocol. Now, you can use the method however necessary within your code.

Thank you. I kept getting it to 'conform' in an xcode playground. But I got confused by the wording of the question.
