where is the prompt for method requirement?

I'm a little confused here. The prompt asks for a property requirement and doesn't mention anything about a method requirement (what it should be called, what it should return).

protocols.swift
protocol Animal {
  var numberOfLegs: Int { get }
}

protocol Pet: Animal {
 static var cuddlyName: String { get set }
}

It's poorly worded. It's trying to tell you that cuddlyName needs to be get-only. Just get rid of set and it'll work.
