I am getting an error for this

I can't understand, What's wrong in this code.

struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String
    func getFullName()->(String){
    return  "\(firstName) \(lastName)"
let aPerson = Person(firstName: "Priyatham", lastName: "Reddy")
let fullName = aPerson.getFullName()

Hi Karthik!

I had to do some digging on this one, but I was able to find what the issue is. The problem lies in the declaration of your function:

func getFullName() -> (String) {

For the challenge to work, the function needs to return a String, but what is being returned is actually a Tuple with a single member. This boils down to String and (String) being different types, with the parentheses on the latter making it the Tuple that I mentioned. I tested the code, and it went through as soon as I took them off.

I hope this helps, and Happy Coding!
