Is the array class supposed to inherit from the String class in Task 1? I wrote the answer to Task 2 in similar fashion.

I wrote my code this way:

class Array def array @array = [] end


array = Array.new

class Array
def array
  @array = []


array = Array.new

Hi there,

We're creating new instances of a String and an Array. We don't need to implement a new class for either.

So just call new on each of the two types and assign them into the variable names, as given:

string = String.new
array = Array.new

That's all there is to it!


Thanks Steve!

No problem! :+1: :smile:
