Not sure how the last part works. I just don't understand what the quiz is asking for.


// Enter your code below
var iceCream: [String: String] = [
"CC": "Chocolate Chip",
"AP": "Apple Pie",
"PB": "Peanut Butter"
iceCream["RR"] = "Rocky Road"
let applePie = "AP"

Mahmoud: Here is the progression.

  1. Create a dictionary and assign it to a variable iceCream - looks like you've done this.
  2. Add the key: value pair ("RR", "Rocky Road"). To do this you need to use the variable iceCream created in step 1 and call the .updateValue method like this.
iceCream.updateValue("Rocky Road" forKey: "RR")

Next, retrieve the value of apple pie using the following syntax and add it to a constant.

let applePie = iceCream["AP"]

The final step is to change or update the value for the key "CC", using the same method as in step 2 above.

iceCream.updateValue("Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough" forKey: "CC")
