Though you didn't post your code, you obviously passed task 1 already. Task 2 also involves a function call, but instead of assigning the output to a variable, you will pass the variable to the function as a parameter.

Remember that parameters go inside the parentheses "()" that follow the function name.

Be sure to post your code if you need any additional assistance.

thanks alot man and sorry for late reply you reminded me little things that i didnt pay attention to...

The WriteLine() function accepts a String variable as a parameter. You don't need to type WriteLine(string firstName), only WriteLine(firstName)
