You may have misread the instructions, the "value" part of the first pair is just an empty string :point_right: ''

Also, the syntax for the assignment is variable name, then operator, then dictionary definition:

student = { 'name':'', 'topic':'python' }

Thank you so much i think now i get it.Thank you once more.
