Ruby Ruby Loops Build a Simple Contact List Assigning Hash Values From Methods

16,187 Points

Hi! got answer right but website doesn't let me continue. Anybody having the same issue?

This contact.rb file is part of a larger program. Elsewhere in the program, we've defined a get_name method that takes no arguments, and returns a string.

The code currently in contact.rb creates a contact hash with a "name" key that has an empty string as its value. Update the code to call the get_name method, and assign the return value of get_name to the "name" key in the contact hash.

contact_list = []

contact = {"name" => "", "phone_number" => "" }

contact["name"] = get_name

Hi Alejandra, are you still having this same issue? I tried to replicate with your code and it appears to work for me.
