bryce = Student(name ='kuda') will create a new instance of Student, which shouldn't belong in the class definition of Student; also, you didn't pass in a default argument to name.

Give init a name keyword argument with a default value of your choice

class Student:
  def __init__(self, name="kuda"):
    self.name = name

thank you it worked
