Create Admin Menu - Can't finish challenge

Hi there, I can't find a way to get this challenge right. Could you tell me what the error is?


function my_plugin_menu() {

    // Page Title: My Plugin Settings Page
    // Menu Title: My Plugin
    // Slug: Same as menu name, but with hyphens instead of spaces
    // Make sure user has ability to manage plugin options
    // my_plugin_options_page() is the function for what displays on the options page

  add_options_page() {
    'My Plugin Settings Page',
    'My Plugin',

  add_action ('admin_menu', 'my_plugin_menu');

The parameters for add_options_page go inside the parentheses for the function, there shouldn't be curly braces there. See http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/add_options_page
