Hi Bardhyl,

Here's what I'll saying without giving away the answer for free: -- Because you're looping through a 2-dimensional array, the question requires the use of two different variables--one for each index in each dimension. -- It doesn't matter what variable names you use. When I loop through a 2D array, I usually use 'i' for the outer loop and 'j' for the inner loop. --If all else fails, hand-write the code on paper (or in a text editor) to make it more legible. Personally, the large blank spaces made it harder for me to read than it needs to be.

Let me know if any of that helps. Thanks!
