1 - There is no function as max_age.
2 - Age is an array of numbers. You have to find the maximum age and return the corresponding name. Suppose, the 3rd element in the age array is the largest, so it is asking you to submit the 3rd element from the name array.
3 - The question is not asking you to display the name. It is asking you to return the name (character arraystring)

Hi Devleena, following function can be used to find the name of oldest person.
function oldest_name = findOldest(name,age)
len = length(name);
Max_age = -1;
Max_index = -1;
for i = 1:len
if(age(1,i)>Max_age)
Max_age = age(1,i);
Max_index = i;
end
end
oldest_name = name(1,Max_index);
end
Hope it helps !
