Hi Thomas,

For Task 3, you need to pass in an anonymous function with response as a parameter. To give you an idea of how that works: an anonymous function is unnamed, and the parameter needs to be identified inside of the parentheses of that function header.

var http = require('http');

http.get('http://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json', function(response){});

Hope this helps!
