Ruby Loops - Methods That Return a Value; this is a bummer

I can't figure out what I'm missing about this challenge!?!

ask.rb
def parse_answer(answer, kind="string")
  answer = gets.chomp
  answer = answer.to_i if kind=="number"
  return answer
end

Hi MacKenzie Stout

Overall your solution is right, only problem here is that the challenge didn't ask for accepting user input, therefore, line 2 should be deleted.

def parse_answer(answer, kind="string")
  answer = answer.to_i if kind=="number"
  return answer
end

Hope it helps.
