An array literal - challenge

I'm stuck on the Javascript array course -'create an array' of objects challenge.
It must either be a very silly error or a bug.

It asks to create an empty array literal called objects., so I've typed:

var objects [];

But it doesn't like it. Any ideas why?

What does a literal mean anyway? Is that an empty string, array etc...?

Thanks.

Y B,

You forgot to assign it! Hint: =

Also, check out the Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) for more information on literals.
