For the first challenge it is asking you to take the id variable and make it uppercase and assign it to the userName variable. You are pretty close, but are not using the .toUpperCase() correctly. Instead of passing the string (id) to the method, you can take the id string and apply .toUpperCase() to it directly.


Hope that helps.
