Does not understand how class and arrays interact.

From TODO 2 onwards, I do not understand how class and arrays interact--can someone explain from todo 2--what each line of code is doing? I understand classes and arrays, but I do not understand how these two work together or the syntax.

Class objects and arrays don't actually "interact" in any special way. So like "names" in step 1 contains strings, the array "cows" created in step 2 just happens to contain objects. The loops in the later steps just deal with the individual objects.

Try looking at it with that perspective and see if it becomes clear. If not, perhaps it will help you identify a more specific question.

Also, it looks like you have a Techdegree subscription. That still includes access to a Slack channel where you can interact live with staff Success Specialists, right? Don't overlook that resource!
