How to make a class instance?

This would be a stupid question.. but actually I am stuck, I tried to find any solution in the forum but I could not.

I tried many times, it does not work I dont know what would be the problem!

thank you.

first_class.py
class Student:
    name="MyName"

me=Student()
print (me.name)

Hi Mohammad!

The problem is that the coding challenge got more information than it was expecting. You've created the class correctly and your code ran as expected on my end.

Just remove the lines 4 and 5 where you assign the class to the 'me' variable and the print call. (The challenge is likely already performing similar steps behind the scenes to test your code and those extra lines are confusing it.)

Cheers!

it should be...

** class Student: name = "blah"

me = Student() print(me.name) **

Its the print with the space from the parentheses which causes the problem

Good Luck!
