Where did I go wrong?

I have seen the video and I guess that I have succesfully created the class but failed in creating the attribute

class Student:
    name = True
    "Ankush"= Student.name()

Here's a few hints:

  • name should be assigned a string (with your name) instead of True
  • the creation of the instance should be done outside (after) the class definition
  • a literal string can never be the left side of an assignment
  • the instructions say to "make an instance of your class named me"
  • you won't need to reference the attribute when creating the instance
  • when you do reference the attribute, it needs to be done in a "print" statement

class Student: name ="carlos"

me = Student() print(me.name)
