You're on the right track, just missing a comma and you forget to add quotation marks to USA which was treating it as a variable instead of "USA" as a string.

var newYork = {
  population: 100, 
  latitude: '40.7127 N',
  longitude: '74.0059 W',
  population: 8.406e6, // Added a missing comma
  country: "USA" // add quotation marks to create string instead of variable
};
