When iterating over a Python dictionary you can iterate over the keys(), the values(), or the items(). In this case, they want you to just iterate over the keys in the student dictionary.

student = {'name': 'Craig', 'major': 'Computer Science', 'credits': 36}

for key in student.keys(): # <-- name, major, credits

For a more in-depth reference on Python dictionaries, try the Google developer page.

true story

i did that but its wrong

its actually values because that is what your looking for.

student = {'name': 'Craig', 'major': 'Computer Science', 'credits': 36}

for key, val in student.items(): print(key) print(value)

answer is .items
