func switchColor(_ color: Color) { self. color = color } don't pass WiFi Lamp quiz. do you know why? thanks

protocols.swift
// Declare protocol here

protocol ColorSwitchable {
  func switchColor(_ color: Color)
}
enum LightState {
  case on, off
}

enum Color {
  case rgb(Double, Double, Double, Double)
  case hsb(Double, Double, Double, Double)
}

class WifiLamp {
  let state: LightState
  var color: Color

  init() {
    self.state = .on
    self.color = .rgb(0,0,0,0)
  }

  func switchColor(_ color: Color) {
       self.color = color
    }
}

Make sure you declare the protocol for the WifiLamp class to implement, in this case it should be

class WifiLamp: ColorSwitchable {
  let state: LightState
  var color: Color

  init() {
    self.state = .on
    self.color = .rgb(0,0,0,0)
  }

  func switchColor(_ color: Color) {
       self.color = color
    }
}
