Hi kevin ohion,

it looks like you need to capitalize 'string' in your code.

Thank you, ISAIAH S, but it reports illegal start of public class Name, it must wrong here.

Don't worry about the wrapping class code yet...we'll get there. I think you are a little ahead of the course ;)

Thank you, Craig!
