Build a Weather App Using Swift - Challenge Task 1

I'm currently stuck on this challenge. I've entered the following code but I keep getting the bummer message. Not sure where I'm going wrong.

Can someone please explain where I'm going wrong.


import Foundation

// Add your code below
let plistPath = NSBundle.mainBundle().pathForResource("CrazyInformation", ofType: "plist")
let plist = NSDictionary(contentsOfFile: plistPath)

The problem here is that pathForResource returns an optional String and therefore has to be unwrapped. Take a look at this more in-depth answer.

Hope that helps!
