You're close, but you have these issues:

  • the list must be enclosed in brackets :point_right: "levels" : [1, 2, 3, 4]
  • the argument to "dict" must be keyword=value :point_right: "items" : dict(bank="money")
  • -OR-   you could just use another literal :point_right: "items" : {"bank" : "money"}
