*We saw that we can get specific objects from the Parse back-end using 'getObjectInBackgroundWithId:block:'. Pass that message to the 'query' variable to retrieve an object with the ID "1" (it's an NSString). Just pass in 'nil' for the block parameter in this step (we'll fix that next). *

So there is a query variable already created for you. You need to call the getObjectInBackgroundWIthId: block: method on that query variable. pass in an id of 1 for the id argument, and nil for the block argument.

This was an incredibly confusingly phrased question. Your clarification made it perfectly clear what it was asking and I was able to solve the question within 5 seconds of reading your clarification. Perhaps they should rephrase the question to make it more clear? Just a thought.

Thanks for the help!
