Hi there, Isaiah Narraway! There are a couple of things going on here. In the body of the method, it should be using puts to display whatever was sent in. To call a method, you need a pair of parentheses that will then pass in any arguments needed. In this case, the argument is meant to be the string "Ruby" per the instructions. You're pretty close here, though.

def say(first)
  puts first  # print whatever was sent in

say("Ruby") # call the method and send it the string "Ruby"

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
