I kinda can't get to finish the 2nd task here: " Update the response from hello() to say "Hello {name}", replacing {name} with the passed-in name. " I have replaced the return as in the description but I am facing an error that the 1st task is not passing anymore. Any hints, please :) P.S.How do you paste nice formatted code?

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/')
@app.route('/<name>')
def hello(name):
     return 'Hello {name}'.format(name)

[MOD: Added ```python formatting -cf]

When using named format fields, the arguments to format() need to be keyword/argument pairs:

'Hello {name}'.format(name=name)

Post back if you have more questions. Good Luck!
