i cant figure out whats wrong here

class Student:
    name = "Olebogeng"

    def praise(self):
    return "You are doing a great job, {}!".format(self.name)

Hi. You are misusing the .format method. Try the following instead.

return "You are doing a great job, {0}!".format(self.name)


return f"You are doing a great job, {self.name}!"

You can read from this page to understand more about the new way of formatting strings in Python3. https://realpython.com/python-f-strings/

Your return statement needs to be indented so that it is included in the praise method
