The instructions want a function that "returns whether that argument's year attribute is equal to 2012.", so with that in mind:

  • the code needs to access the year attribute instead of calling a function named "year"
  • the attribute must be accessed on the argument instead of "datetime"
  • the date attribute will need to be compared to 2012 to get a true/false value to return
