Challenge Task 2 not working

The question asks to create an array called grocery_list and to place the hash value with the "item" key in it.

I tried running this in irb and its working fine, but it doesn't get accepted in the challenge itself:

grocery_list = [] grocery_list[0] = grocery_item.values_at("item")

grocery_item = { "item" => "Bread", "quantity" => 1, "brand" => "Treehouse Bread Company" }
if grocery_item.has_value?("Bread")
  grocery_item["food"] = true
grocery_list = []
grocery_list[0] = grocery_item.values_at("item")

Never Mind. I realized that the values_at function returns an array So all that has to be done is to set grocery_list = grocery_item.values_at("item")

grocery_item = {
   "item" => "Bread", 
   "quantity" => 1, 
    "brand" => "Treehouse Bread Company" }

grocery_list = [ ]
grocery_item.each do |k, v|
    grocery_list << k if k == 'item'

thats how you would input only the key into the new array. if I'm understanding the problem right.
