Hi Alan,

Here is the question from the challenge...

Create a variable named greeting and assign it a value of "Hello".

What the challenge is asking for is the most basic variable called greeting that contains a string value of Hello, in Swift we can achieve this using the code below.

var greeting = "Hello"

Without knowing your exact skill level I recommend you go through the Introduction to Programming course, which, while it's an older course still demonstrates some very basic and common coding practices across all languages including Swift.

If you're still having trouble understanding Swift let us know as we're always here to help out.
