How to use PDO inside of child of PDO?

I am not sure how to go about using PDO inside of a child of PDO for this task. Any pointers?

sqlRepository.php
<?php

class sqlRepository extends PDO implements RepositoryInterface
{
   public function all($entity){
     parent::prepare();
   }
}

Can you give some more info on what you're struggling with? And what goes wrong? Which errors you're getting? What different solutions you tried?

I ended up solving the issue with the help of some other conversations from another question.

While I was a little unclear on the syntax for using methods within a child class I was mostly getting hung up in the challenge due to using PDO::prepare instead of PDO::query. The challenge only passed when using query with variables written directly into an sql statement vs a prepared statement.

Thanks for checking in on my issue, I appreciate your engagement and follow up.
