It looks like the code has gotten a bit scrambled. For Task 1, you have most of the elements:

  • Define function correctly: def hello_student(name):
  • Return a value. Here the returned value should use the argument passed in: return "Hello " + name or return f"Hello {name}"

For Task 2, you need to

  • call the function with an argument: hello_student('Ashley')
  • assign the return value to the variable hello
