:point_right: It looks like you have a few issues with task 3:

  • you wrote "If" with a capital "I" (it should be "if")
  • the first argument to TryParse should be a string (not a string array)
  • you reference dataTimeValues but it has not been declared (but you did declare timeOfDay)
  • you attempt to assign a DateTime (dataTimeValues) to a string (values)
  • the challenge asks you to assign the new property weatherForecast.TimeOfDay instead
  • the task 3 code will need to come after the instantiation of weatherForecast
