Can someone help me I can not figure out why is telling me I need a variable called result

Can someone help me I can not figure out why is telling me I need a variable called result, or what is wrong? Thank you

tuples.swift
func greeting(person: String) -> (greeting: String, language: String) {
    let language = "English"
    let greeting = ("Hello \(person)", " \(language)")

    return greeting
}
var result = return (greeting("Tom"))

On construction of the function you have specified that you will be returning both greeting and language of type string respectively.

Therefore you need to return both.

Thank you I did try that and it worked

Since you are returning the language in the greeting could use this (for reference although it may not be part of the challenge)

func greeting(person: String) -> String {
    let language = "English"
    let greeting = ("Hello \(person)", " \(language)")

    return greeting
}
var result = return (greeting("Tom")) //Would return "Hello Tom, English"

If these answers have helped you, please feel free to mark it as best so as to help other students with similar questions.
