Creating a Data Model Challenge 2 of 3

The video does not connect to the challenge and I can't pass the challenge -

In the video, the NSArray is created in the implementation file and initialized, then the self.funFactLabel.text line is added to pass a value through the Array to get the data. Do I understand that correctly?

After we create the property with the NSArray *shoppingList in the header file, the question prompts us to add to the implementation file: "Let's add a few items to our grocery list. Switch to the implementation file and in the viewDidLoad method, initialize the shoppingList array to the following items: 'toothpaste', 'bread' and 'eggs'"

Given the video, my answer was as follows:

import "ViewController.h"

@implementation ViewController

  • (void)viewDidLoad { [super viewDidLoad];

NSArray *shoppingList = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects:@"toothpaste", @"bread", @"eggs", nil];



What am I missing?
