Accessing an array

I really don't get it...

This is what i need to do: We are at the grocery store and we picked up the bread. Using array subscripting, retrieve the string "bread" from the array and assign it to a variable named cart. This is the error: Bummer! You need to use subscripting to access the array element.

data_collections.swift
var shoppingList = ["toothpaste", "eggs"]
var cart = [""]
cart.append("bread")

1 Answer

It needs to be like this:

var shoppingList = ["toothpaste", "bread", "eggs"]
var cart = shoppingList[1]

Thank you very much, it worked well
