The task only ask for you to create a class with a name-attribute, so you don't need the methods.

Simply take away the methods (the functions inside of the class), and add a name-attribute.

Also: When you are making a stand-alone class you don't need to add anything to the parentheses, since this is where you put in the parent-class that you want to build the class upon.

Thank you, I finally figured it out on my own.
