Stuck on ERB basics code challenge

This is really embarrassing but I just don't understand what I'm supposed to do here the instruction says "Loop through our statuses array in an ERB template. Assume we have statuses set up as an array and want to print out the name."

and the code given is

<% @statuses.each do |status| %>
  Name: <br />
<% end %>

I listened attentively to the whole video before the code challenge and I'm kind of disheartened that I have no idea what it's asking me to do, if someone could explain this to me that would be greatly appreciated

The challenge wants you to output the name attribute of each status object. In erb you use <%= to output something. In this case, you want to use <%= status.name %>.
