The problem is that you have not wrapped your strings in quotes. Which means that JavaScript will look for variables called GB, London, etc. Which it won't find since they don't exist.

If you add qoute marks to them which marks them as strings like this:

var objects = []; 
objects = [
  {country: "GB", capital: "London"},
  {country: "Spain", capital: "Madrid"},
  {country: "France", capital: "Paris"}

Then your code will pass.

True! Thank you, andren!
