Hiya Karthikeyan! The challenge wants ya to print "string" variable and increment the counter everytime you print the "string" that "repeat" function is recievin'. And when your counter reaches the "times" variable, the loop should break out. Here is the code for your reference:

def repeat(string, times)
  fail "times must be 1 or more" if times < 1
  counter = 0
  loop do
    # YOUR CODE HERE
    puts "#{string}"
    counter += 1
    if counter == times
      break
    end
  end
end

Thanks, Ari Misha.
