The task instructions say "Create a dictionary with the following key value pairs: 1) key: 'name', value: '', 2) key: 'topic', value: 'python'." So, some hints:

  • the "1)" and "2)" are not part of the data, they are just indicating the two pairs
  • each pair will have a key and value, but the words "key" and "value" will not be in the data
  • the value to be associated with "name" is just an empty string (two quote marks together)
