Please help. I find this a bit complicated

enum ParserError: ErrorType {
  case EmptyDictionary
  case InvalidKey

struct Parser {
  var data: [String : String?]?

  func parse() throws {
      guard (data?["key"]) != nil else {
            throw ParserError.EmptyDictionary
        let includedKeys = data?.keys
        let boolAns: Bool = (includedKeys?.contains("someKey"))!
        guard boolAns else {
            throw ParserError.InvalidKey

let data: [String : String?]? = ["someKey": nil]
let parser = Parser(data: data)
