The task asks you to create method that returns a hash. You simply create a variable that contains a hash.

If you have forgotten how to create and use methods you can rewatch some of the videos in the "Ruby Methods" module in the Ruby Basics course.

You've created a variable. The challenge wants a method that returns a hash when called.

def create_shopping_list
  {}
end
