Challenge: Record Collection

Link to the challenge:

try resetting your code so that the object will return to the original state, then paste in your code

@ieahleen Why reset is required since her code is fine. just trying to understand

the object could have been accidentally changed, so resetting the code bring it back to the original status to make sure that this test passes, as it seems to be the only one missing
