Error in challenge 2/2 in What is an Array? Swift

Q : Print out the number of items in the todo array using println. A :

var todo = ["Learn Swift","Build App","Deploy App"]


Bummer! Try again!

You need to remove the quotes sorry since its turning the function call into a string my bad

This will fix it :)

I have use the backslash println("(todo.count)")

I have updated my comment sorry i read the post wrong remove the "" since you use that if you want to print a string in this case you want to use a function on a variable and it will return a value so you don't need to put the quotes around it

its ok but i have try it without quotes also but no use

Thanks problem solved.

The Treehouse compiler doesn't want this message. The reason is, using interpolation here isn't really needed. When you're printing the value of a variable by itself using println, there's no need to interpolate since the value is a number, not being explicitly included within a string. The code you're using would work in XCode however, if you include a backslash.


Thanks for that, I was over complicating the answer and now that I see that it makes more sense.

correct answer is println (todo.count)
