Hey Ben,

In addition to Ari's point of the missing end, there are also two other errors that will prevent you from passing.

  1. The instructions explicitly ask to return the strings, but you are using puts.
  2. In the if conditional, the second part, you have the word "is" in there for some reason. It should read like the first part (no "is").

Fix up what Ari pointed out, and correct these two, and the challenge will pass.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:

Hiya Ben! You forgot to close your "if" statement with "end" keyword. Do that and you're good to go. (:
