It looks like you're getting too fancy.

For task 1 you only need to construct an empty class for the new controller. Unless you've passed task 1 before, how would you know what to put in it, anyway?

Then for task 2 the instructions do say to create a method named Detail, but what they ask for is one that simply returns a string, not an ActionResult object.
