Crystal Ball extra credit issue

on the Interface page I have

@interface SDViewController : UIViewController
@property (strong, nonatomic) IBOutlet UILabel *predictionLabel;
@property (strong, nonatomic) NSArray *predictions;
@property (strong, nonatomic) IBOutlet UIColor *color;
@property (strong, nonatomic) NSArray *colors;
For the implementation page I have
- (void)viewDidLoad
    [super viewDidLoad];

    self.predictions = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects:
                       @"It is Certain",
                       @"It is Decidedly So",
                       @"All signs say YES",
                       @"The Stars are not aligned",
                       @"My reply is no",
                       @"It is doubtful",
                       @"Better not tell you now",
                       @"Concentrate and ask again",
                       @"Unable to answer now",
                       @"Maybe, yes", nil];

    self.predictions = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects:


- (void)didReceiveMemoryWarning
    [super didReceiveMemoryWarning];
    // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.

- (IBAction)buttonPressed {
    int random = arc4random_uniform(self.predictions.count);
    self.predictionLabel.text = [self.predictions objectAtIndex:random];
    self.color = [self.colors objectAtIndex:random];


What am I doing wrong. I don't have any stop signs. I do have an empty circle in the gutter though on the VC.h page

Your second array should be allocated and initialised for 'self.colors' (you wrote 'self.predications' twice).

Hope this helps

Thank you Sebastian! I did see that and change it, however, I am still having a myriad of issues.
