What is wrong with my answer?

I am returning a tuple containing both values, but I keep getting the "Bummer!" message. Could someone tell me what exactly is wrong? I copied the same code to xCode and it works. Thank you.

func greeting(person: String) -> (String, String) {
    let language = "English"
    let greeting = "Hello \(person)"

    return (greeting, language)

hey gilberto!!

your code is almost finished. all you have to do is let the system know that your returning two strings, but you have to tell it what your returning. in your case greeting and language


func greeting(person: String) -> (greeting: String, language: String)

and everything else should be the same as you have...that should work for you.

hope that helps sharif,

Gilberto, the exercise says to name the parts of the tuple "greeting" and "language." What this means is to name the tuple when defining the data type of your return value:

func greeting(person: String) -> (greeting: String, language: String) { let language = "English" let greeting = "Hello (person)"

return (greeting, language)


You should still have local variables named "greeting" and "language."
