I'll give you a hint and see if you can figure it out, look at your if else, statement, it might be missing something. The second hint is that car_speed is a variable, not the name of the method.

Let me know if that helps, and if not I can help walk you through how to figure out and correct those two issues.

got it.. thank you for the hints :)

def check_speed(car_speed)
  if (car_speed >= 40 && car_speed <=50)
    return "safe"
    return "unsafe"

check_speed (45) 

It worked
