Straight from the Apple Documentation (https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/Swift/Conceptual/Swift_Programming_Language/Properties.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40014097-CH14-ID255) :

"A stored property is a constant or variable that is stored as part of an instance of a particular class or structure." For example, every time you create an instance of your User struct, that instance will include access to the 'stored properties,' "name," and "age" (which you've set to priyanka and 5\0*9).

Your code is probably giving you an error because the 'name' property must be string and the age property must be an int. You are not surrounding your name with double quotes (") and in your 'age' property, you are trying to divide by zero, which will definitely give you an error. Plus, you are using the wrong character for division which should be a forward slash (/) instead of a backslash (\).

Your answer should be something like this:

struct User{
   let name = "priyanka"
   let age = 5
