Hey Luke Shephard Zikuyumo, you're almost there. Here's what missing:

  • :point_right: the function is missing the parameter name
  • :point_right: hello should be a quoted string using (" "), capitalized, and include a space
  • :point_right: Need to return the new string val not the parameter name
  • :point_right: The print(luke) is causing an error due to luke is not defined. This line can be deleted.

Post back if you need more help. Good Luck!!
