It doesn't look like you wrote any code yet. But this one's really not too tough. The instructions give you the name of the method to call and tell you where it needs to be placed in the code. And you could look this up, but I'll go ahead and tell you that the method does not require any parameters. So the only thing left is to use razor syntax to call the method.

And if you're not sure about that, you can see examples of other helper methods being called throughout the form.

Give it your best shot, and ask another question (just once!) if you're still stuck.
