Hello Roseleen

I think you slightly misunderstood the question. You are asked to get the return from console.readline and cast it to a string. Would you do is:

string firstName = Console.ReadLine().ToString();

or var firstName = Console.ReadLine(); The return type from Console.ReadLine() is always a string so it needs not extra casting.

I hope this helps Katrin
