You're nearly there. You just need to remove description from the parameters of your init method.

    init(red: Double , green: Double , blue: Double , alpha: Double){

        self.red = red
        self.green = green
        self.blue = blue
        self.alpha = alpha
        self.description = "red: \(self.red), green: \(self.green), blue: \(self.blue), alpha: \(self.alpha)"
    }

I hope this helps!
