Ruby Ruby Blocks Working With Blocks Implementing Block Methods

There's a bug in the MyArray class! Modify the each method to return the member array.

what does the question mean when it says "member array"? also since there is a while loop where would i add the code?

class MyArray
  attr_reader :array
  def initialize
    @array = []
  end

  def push(item)
    array.push(item)
  end

  def each(&block)
    i = 0
    while i < array.length
      block.call(array[i])
      i += 1
    end

  end
end

Hello Chris! I find myself sometimes getting confused by the questions too, but more often than not its me over thinking it. In this case its just asking you to return the value of the array in the each method. Almost all the code is already there and all you have to do is plug in the word "array" in the right spot. Hint: its in the "each" method and after the while loop! If you still need more details let me know!

You were right I did overthink the question. Thank you for the response I was able to get the correct answer with your assistance.
