I do not understand what it is asking?

I'm lost on what it is asking me to do?

object.js
var contact = {
  firstName: "Andrew",
  lastName: "Chalkley",
  fullName: function(){
    console.log(this.firstName + " " + this.lastName);
  }
}

Instead of logging out the full name, modify the code so it returns the string instead. This is the challenge task.

Instead of console.log() they're asking you to to return the value. So replace console.log with the word return and remove the (). This return keyword actually returns the results of the code block back to the program where the function is called. Whereas console.log merely prints it to the console, which is useful for debugging and practice, but not for the program itself.
