-MOD edit. If you want help, you've got to be more descriptive than "it's not working"
Explain your answer and show your code.
Also, kill the expletives (I edited them out for you), not helpful to the conversation

What isn't working. Talk sense.

Your 3rd objective in NSDictionary requests the user to create two NSString objects prior to entering them into the Dictionary.


NSDictionary *album = @{@"title":@"Abbey Road", @"artist":@"The Beatles"};
NSMutableDictionary *albumMutable = [NSMutableDictionary dictionaryWithDictionary: album];

NSString *year = [[NSString alloc] init];
year = @"year";

NSString *date = [[NSString alloc] init];
date = @"date";

[albumMutable setObject:date forKey:year];

NSLog(@"%@", albumMutable);
return 0;

Which builds and runs the correct answer in the Xcode IDE.
