Hi there, Amit Bareli ! I received your request for assistance :smiley: It looks to me like you're doing terrific and the problem here is placement. You've declared the variable that is to hold a new instance of the class Shape inside the class definition. Moving your last line below the curly braces causes this to pass.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
