Hi I've been struggling with this course for a while now and I keep getting the same error message for Plurality pset3 that there is no target to make plurality. I renamed the file plurality.c and neither did that work. enter image description here

  • Are you executing make in the correct directory?

There's no need to do so. There are defaults built into C that will do it for you. The problem though, is that you have to execute the make command in the same directory as the source file that contains the c code. Clearly, this is not the case in the screenshot.

Change to the directory that contains the file plurality.c and then run the make command.

Also, filenames are case sensitive. Plurality.c and plurality.c are two different files. The make command will consider this too.
