You need to place your properties in the object but outside of the method.

You converted the variable syntax into property syntax, but they are still inside the method. Now move them so they are peers to the fullName method.

I'll bet you can do it now without an explicit spoiler.

You have placed the firstName and lastName property inside of the fullName function, which is not where they belong. If you move them outside the function like this:

var contact = {
  fullName: function() {
    console.log(firstName + " " + lastName);  
  },
  firstName : "Andrew",
  lastName : "Chalkley"
}

Then you'll be able to pass task 1.
