        var wholeName: String {
            return (first + " " + last)

you don't need self here. you have an extra return statement and then your function is taking arguments when it should not. no arguments, returns a string of the first and last names with a space between, that's all you need.

Thanks. I just removed the arguments inside the fullName function and it runs.

If you are referencing the return in wholeName, that is needed because I'm adding multiple string together inside one variable.
