You're on the right track you just need to concatenate the string 'Hello ' followed by the name parameter as asked for in the challenge. Yes it's very strict instructions lol, but since the site is checking for an exact value you must enter exactly what they ask for.

Then on the second part of the challenge you must call the function and save its value in a variable called hello.

def hello_student(name):
    return("Hello " + name);

hello = hello_student("Your name here");
