Bummer! You need to create a variable called `shoppingList`.

why i get this error

var  shoppingList = [String]()
shoppingList += ["toothpaste","bread","eggs"]

You have an extra space after var. Remove that and you should be good to go :)

must say that the grader is very odd here for not allowing an extra space, the code is valid Swift.
