am lost what am i supposed to do?

Modify the Monster constructor to take one parameter of name. When the constructor creates a new instance assign the parameter name and to the property of name on the new instance.

function Monster (Name) { this.name = name }

Did this work in the end? When ever something doesn't work always look for that sneaky semi-colon

Be careful with capital letters and semi-colons. This worked for me:

function Monster(name) {
  this.name = name;

Don't capitalize name.

Thanks Norman.

thanx a lot

Give this a go.

function Monster (Name) {
   this.name = name;

I'm not the greatest JavaScript developer but I think you may have missed the old ;.
