What do I do here? On 'andrew' and 'ryan', set the 'greet' method as the 'genericGreet' function.

Went over the video multiple times & tried several things but I'm still unclear on what's being asked of me in this.

    <title> JavaScript Foundations: Objects</title>
    <style>
      html {
        background: #FAFAFA;
        font-family: sans-serif;
      }
    </style>
  </head>
  <body>
    <h1>JavaScript Foundations</h1>
    <h2>Objects: Methods</h2>
    <script>


      var genericGreet = function() {
        return "Hello, my name is " + this.name;
      }

      var andrew = {
        name: "Andrew"
      }

      var ryan = {
        name: "Ryan"
      }

    </script>
  </body>
</html>

Hi Ross! Try this, it worked for me. You probably forgot to put commas after names.

 var andrew = {
        name: "Andrew",
        greet: genericGreet
      }
      var ryan = {
        name:"Ryan",
        greet: genericGreet
      }

That's exactly what it was. It's always the smallest thing I'm overlooking. Thx Yulia!
