To declare an array of type String:

var stringArray: [String]

To instantiate stringArray with an array literal upon declaration:

var stringArray: [String] = ["this", "is", "a", "string", "array"]

When applying this structure to the challenge, you replace stringArray with favoriteSports, and put the entries of favoriteSports between the brackets, with commas between each entry.

I hope this helps!

Great Answer from Anjali,

So you can see the complete picture of this task. Task number 3 asks you to add to the Array, so you can append the next value as below.

let bestSmartphone = "iPhone"
var favoriteSports: [String] = ["football","basketball","tennis"]

Hope this helps, Marc
