You are missing the condition of the second part where you are setting the case for less than or equal to 50. You are also missing the end keyword in your if else block:

def check_speed(car_speed)
  # write your code here
  if car_speed >= 40 && car_speed <= 50
    return "safe"
  else
    return "unsafe"
  end
end

the return keyword is optional

Thanks for the help.
