the template code defined the Name class for you, all you need to do in part 1 is to create a new Instance of Class & assign it to variable named name.

You create new instance of Class by using the keyword new.

class Name
  def first_name
    "First"
  end

  def last_name
    "Last"
  end
end

name = Name.new  # create new instance of Name class

Thanks a lot!!!
