I dont understand what this question is asking. Is there an example or another way of presenting this question?

Add a second parameter to the constructor named reactionTime after the existing parameter and use it to initialize the value of the ReactionTime field.

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
    class Frog
        public readonly int TongueLength;

        public readonly int ReactionTime;

        public Frog(int tongueLength)
            TongueLength = tongueLength;

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
            return TongueLength >= distanceToFly;

Yeah the instruction is written poorly in my opinion: Some might get confused and think the constructor is named reactionTime.

They meant add a second parameter reactionTime to the constructor Frog right after the parameter tongueLength, and then use it to initialize ReactionTime.

Thanks that helped a lot!
