  let lastName: String

  func getFullName() -> String {

Hi Bala, you've created an instance inside the getFullName method. The instance needs to be created outside of the method and the struct. Like this

struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

    func getFullName() -> String {
        return "\(firstName) \(lastName)"
    }
}

let aPerson = Person(firstName: "Bala", lastName: "Selvam")
let fullName = aPerson.getFullName()

Hope this helps. Happy coding :)
