What's wrong?

What did I wrong? Is there a bug or something :(

ruby.rb
def check_speed(car_speed)
  if (car_speed >= 40) && (car_speed <= 50)
    puts "safe"
  else
    puts "unsafe"
end

2 small issues here.

  1. You should've used return instead of puts for this challenge
  2. forgot to close the if..else... conditional clauses with end keyword
def check_speed(car_speed)
  if (car_speed >= 40) && (car_speed <= 50)
    return "safe"    # use return keyword, not puts
  else
    return "unsafe"  # use return keyword, not puts
  end                # don't forget the end keyword here.
end

hope this helps.

Thanks :)
