Using the respond_to? method, ask the string variable if it responds to the upcase method. Remember, the respond_to?

I'm not getting a good grasp of the method yet. It's getting confuse for me. 'apple, peach, pineapple' would be my argument. I don't know at the moment.

string = String.new(apple, peach, pineapple) string.respond_to?("upcase")

object.rb
string = String.new[apple, peach, pineapple]
string.respond_to?("upcase")

Sy,

I am not entirely sure of your intention, but the arguments you show in your code has brackets and not parenthesis. Keep the code simple and if you just use something similar to string = String.new("My string example"), it should work well.

I figured it out. Thanks! I overthinking the question.
