Hello rr,

You’re only supposed to rename the textand shift variables inside the function body. Nothing above it. Also you will have to add the comments back. I would advise to reset the step and make sure you only rename the variables inside the function body now.

step 49 require you to rename text and shift variable inside the function to message and offset respectively. for example

you need to check the other areas where you need to change the variable inside the function

Hi @rr7499042 , @tariq89q
there are about 3 places that you still need to update in your code.

Update and you are good.

NOTE you do not need to update those variable initialization as there are not in your function body.
