retrieve the key 'name' from the hash 'contact'. Correct?

def get_name contact_list = [] contact = {"name" => "", "phone_number" => "" } name = contact_list(contact["name"]) return name end

I'm confused what its asking me to do. That's what it sounds like to me.

Hi Loi

The quiz is asking you to assign the value of the key name to return value of the method get_name(). To do that you will just need to put the method in the contact hash.

contact_list = []

contact = {"name" => "get_name()", "phone_number" => "" }

Happy coding!
