The firstname and lastname variables were not defined. You have to define them first before using them.

Okay thank you… I’d check it out now… I’ve been so occupied with school, I haven’t had the time to continue with the course

I just tried doing this and still fails the test;"/name", function(req, res) {
  // Handle the data in the request
const firstName = req.query.first;
  const lastName = req.query.last;
  // Use template literals to form a formatted string
    name: `${firstName} ${lastName}`
//   res.json({ name: req.body.first + " " + req.body.last });
// });

Try using req.body instead of req.query

Yes this is probably the solution. I literally just finished this 5 minutes ago.
