I still can't figure this out! I don't know what I'm doing wrong!

Given the struct below in the editor, we want to add a method that returns the person’s full name. Declare a method named fullName() that returns a string containing the person’s full name. Note: Make sure to allow for a space between the first and last name

It keeps saying: (Bummer: Make sure your function does not take any parameters and returns a String)

structs.swift
struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

  func fullName() -> [String] {
    let name = "\(firstName) \(lastName)"

    return [name]
  }
  }

You're pretty close! The error message tells you to "Make sure your function ... returns a String", but the code shown here is returning a String array instead.

So just remove all the brackets and you'll pass task 1.
