What's wrong? WHERE clause is not working

This is my code, in task 2 I used the variable $id as an argument and used it in the member_id to just show the values of that specific ID but they keep telling me that I need to use a WHERE statement to show one specific value. Please Help

function get_member($id) {

    try {
      $results = $db->query(
          "SELECT member_id, email, fullname, level
          FROM members
          WHERE member_id = $id"
    } catch (Exception $e) {
      echo "bad query";

    $members = $results->fetch();
    return $members;

Hey Juan,

the second to last line was modified in your code.

Change $members = $results->fetch(); to $members = $results->fetchAll();.
