How could I understand it?

Hello, I don't get this one at all but if someone could bring me a hint with his light it will be wonderful. I don't understand the question and don't get how I could return "UIFontTextStyleHeadline". Maybe by assigning to each case of the enum the corresponding constant?

The question must be as clear as my head is now, hope you can help me.

Thank you in advance and enjoy your day.

What you want to do in the computed property is a switch that will switch the enum as "self", and in each case you return the corresponding constant.

let UIFontTextStyleHeadline = "UIFontTextStyleHeadline"
let UIFontTextStyleBody = "UIFontTextStyleBody"
let UIFontTextStyleFootnote = "UIFontTextStyleFootnote"

enum Text {
    case Headline
    case Body
    case Footnote

    var style: String {
        switch self {
        case .Headline:
            return UIFontTextStyleHeadline
        case .Body:
            return UIFontTextStyleBody
            return UIFontTextStyleFootnote

Good luck
