Hi John

Your code is fine, just take the function removeVowels out of the transform function, and put it directly into the extension. Try the below code to check if it works.

extension String {

    func transform(_ aString: (String) -> String ) -> String {
        return(aString(self))
    }


    func removeVowels(from string: String) -> String {
        var newString = ""
        for character in string.characters {
            if ["a","e","i","o","u"].contains(character) {
                newString.append(character)
            }
    }
}

thks Simon it works!
