PHP Object-Oriented PHP Basics Understanding Classes Methods of a Class

How do I solve this code challenge?

Create a method on Fish named getInfo that takes no parameters and returns a string that includes the common_name, flavor, and record_weight for the fish. When called on $bass, getInfo might return "A Largemouth Bass is an Excellent flavored fish. The world record weight is 22 pounds 5 ounces."

fish.php
<?php

class Fish
{
    public $common_name;
    public $flavor;
    public $record_weight;

    public function getInfo()
    {
        return $this->title . " by " . $this->source;
    }
}

$bass = new Fish();
$bass->common_name = "Largemouth Bass";
$bass->flavor = "Excellent";
$bass->record_weight = "22 pounds 5 ounces";

?>
