For some reason it isnt going through for me on line 24 care to correct my syntax?

def create_list
  print " Enter your list name "
  name = gets.chomp

  hash = {"name" => name, "items" => Array.new}
  return hash

def add_item
  print" enter your item:"
  item = gets.chomp

  print"Enter amount:"
  quantity = gets.chomp

  stuff = {"item" => item, "quantity" => quantity}
  return stuff

list = create_list()
puts list.inspect

puts add_item.inspect
