You have it mostly right. In Task 2 you omitted using "this". It's the same as you did in Task 1 but instead use brackets which you already did.

This be damned!

Hey Mike I tried putting the “this” keyword in front of the “name property like this ex) return this[‘name] ... and that didn’t work. I’m stuck

Hey Brian.

Leave the code you provided in your original question exactly as it is. You were 90% correct already. Now that you've added "this" before "name", the only mistake you're making is omitting a single quote mark after 'name.' Also, make sure there is a space after "return."

That Worked!! You are the man Mike. I appreciate your help.
