You're on the right track. All you have to do is copy one of these three lines (and delete the other two).

var population
newYork.population = 8.406e6;

longitude: '74.0059 W''

Keep your answer from Task 1 -- newYork.population = 8.406e6;

For Task 2, on a new line use the same format from Task 1 to set newYork.country equal to 'USA'.

Each task is one line of code.
