Android Android Lists and Adapters (2015) Updating the Data Model Using JSONArray

don't get the question.

The data in the file data.json has been loaded into a JSONObject named jsonData. Using data.json as your guide, create a JSONArray object named jsonShows and set it to the array of shows from data.json using the jsonData object.

CodeChallenge.java
// JSONObject 'jsonData' was loaded from data.json

JSONArray jsonShows = jsonData;
data.json
{
    "name":"Netflix Playlist",
    "shows":[
        {
            "title":"Doctor Who",
            "season":8,
            "episode":3
        },
        {
            "title":"Arrow",
            "season":1,
            "episode":10
        },
        {
            "title":"Portlandia",
            "season":4,
            "episode":5
        }
    ]
}

You are pretty close! This challenge is asking you to create a JSONArray object named "jsonShows" and call the JSONObject "jsonData" (which you have done). Now you just need to call the array that you want that's within "jsonData"!

  1. Delete the semicolon after "jsonData"
  2. Add .getJSONArray("_____"); after "jsonData"
  3. The name of the array that you are seeking from the JSON Object jsonData is called shows
  4. Plug everything together and you pass!

I would love if you selected this for best answer!

Cheers!
