The intent is to have two fragments displaying at one time on the same screen. Sorry that wasn't more clear! I'll try to clarify the instructions. Let us know with a new post if you have any follow-up questions. It's an open-ended challenge, but the idea is to modify your Activity's layout and class file to allow for two or more Fragments at once.

You can check out the tablet views in the Master Detail template project for one example, but there are of course multiple ways to do it.
