Complete the code to display the value of a prop named time. Note that Clock is a class component.

class Clock extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <span className="time"> ANSWER HERE </span>    
    );
  }
}

If I wanted to access a prop named title in a class component, it would look like this:

class Welcome extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return <h1>Hello, {this.props.title}</h1>;
  }
}

Adam N I tried this.props.time but that was incorrect. Where did you get "title" from?

cloud712 Did you put curly braces around the expression?

That was a random block of code I found that used props. Should be enough for you to decipher the pattern.

Adam N I forgot the curly braces 🤦 thank you!
