It looks like you passed task 1.

But then...

  • remember how Python uses indentation. If you indent the lines below your class, Python will think that they are supposed to be part of the class.
  • you won't need to use "pass" here
  • remember that Python is case sensitive — "student" is not the same thing as "Student"
  • creating "me" is only part of task 2. Remember you also need to print something

Hopefully these hints will get you going again.

print something? how would that show in the page?

The last part of task 2 is "Then print() out the name attribute of your instance." So you would have the function name, and the argument in parentheses would be the name attribute of your new object.
