Hello Natasha.

Your code is pretty close, there are only a couple of mistakes that I can see.

1) when a you want an argument to be optional you put it equal to 0 and not to 1.

2) inside the function, when you actually create the Challenge, you don't need to set the values equal to the strings that you wrong, you want them to be equal to the arguments we pass in into the function.

Please let me know if not clear.


Thank you Vittorio for pointing out my mistakes,managed to get it to work !
