Hey Darshan Padmanabhan,

You're creating whats known as an instance method here. This means it will be called on an instance of your Person struct. This means you don't need to pass in the properties as arguments to this method. You can refer to the properties inside of the struct directly inside of your method body.

struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

    func getFullName() -> String {
        return "\(firstName) \(lastName)"
    }
}

Good Luck!
