Hi, I think its because C#'s default access modifier is "private" and  you havn't specified one for the person class... change the declaration of the person class to "public":

public class person
    {
        public person()
        {
           
        }
        protected string name;
        public string Name
        {
            get { return name; }
            set { name = value; }
        }
