Hi guys ! I 'm doing this exercice in order to completely understand the “Methods” but I don’t get it…
Why do we need to have answer2 ?
What’s the point of the exemple below :

print “This is my question?”
answer = gets.chomp
answer2 = answer.capitalize

Is this answer Ok ? :

print "What’s your first name? "
first_name = gets.chomp
first_name = “Laurent”.capitalize

print "What’s your last name? "
last_name = gets.chomp
last_name = “Potelet”.capitalize

print "What city are you from? "
city = gets.chomp
city = “Lyon”.capitalize

print "What state or province are you from? "
state = gets.chomp
state = “FR”.upcase

puts “Your name is #{first_name} #{last_name} and you’re from #{city}, #{state}!”
