My code should work (does in XCode), but the answer treehouse is looking for is different. Can someone explain

//my code

func greeting(#person: String) { println("Hello (person)") }

greeting ("Jerry")

// treehouse expected response func greeting(#person: String) { println("Hello (person)") }

greeting (person: "Jerry")

func greeting(#person: String) {
    println("Hello \(person)")

greeting ("Jerry")

Hi Vincent,

func greeting(#person: String) -> String{
    println("Hello \(person)")

greeting(person: "Jerry")

Your block above has an error which isn't printing your response; when you call greeting you are not passing it the argument label (person).
