That's the "arrow" operator, which is a shorthand notation for creating an expression-bodied property.

You just have a couple of spelling issues:

  • you wrote "DescriptIon" (with capital "I") instead of "DescriptIon" (lower case "i")
  • you wrote "Repetitions" (capital "R") instead of "repetitions" (lower case "r")
