How do i add the code for setting the name attribute

it should be the same when one creates an instance and you need to override the init method

first_class.py
class Student:
    name = "Your Name"

    def praise(self):
        return "You inspire me, {}".format(self.name)

    def reassurance(self):
        return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)

    def feedback(self, grade):
        if grade > 50:
            return self.praise()
        return self.reassurance()

    class Student:
        def__init__(self):

Here's a few hints:

  • you already have the class defined, don't repeat "class Student()"
  • there must be a space after the keyword "def"
  • the new method needs to take a "name" argument in addition to "self"
  • the method code needs to use the argument to set the internal name variable
