JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript (2015) Introduction to Methods Adding a Method to an Object

I defined a method on my contact object but it is not accepting my answer

Here is my code which seems to be working in console:

var contact = { fullName: function () { return printFullName() } }

object.js
function printFullName() {
  var firstName = "Andrew";
  var lastName = "Chalkley";
  console.log(firstName + " " + lastName);
}

var contact = {
  fullName: function () { printFullName() }
}

The instructions might not be completely clear.

When they say "use the programming from the printFullName function", they don't mean that you should call that function. They are asking you to replicate the same code in your method.

The reason for the replication might be because the original function will be removed later (though the challenge doesn't go that far).
