Confuse on this task

I'm having a difficult time. It's telling me don't mess with the original objects just add "country" with an = sign to USA, I did but says "task 1 is no longer passing" am I'm doing something wrong for the code to not pass?

script.js
var newYork = {
  population: 100, 
  latitude: '40.7127 N',
  longitude: '74.0059 W',
  population: 8.406,

};

task 1 asks you to not change the object definition like you have. also on all challenges there is a note in grey above the coding box that says add to your code from previous tasks, don't replace it. so leave your line from task 1 in place, then for task 2 use a similar line to add the country key.

OK so for task one I took out population: 8.406e6. And it came out to error now but says don’t change nothing so how can i passs it?
