I am not sure what I am doing wrong here. Can someone help?

When I check this it says: Remeber to append the values from each case statement to the correct array. What do I do?

var europeanCapitals: [String] = []
var asianCapitals: [String] = []
var otherCapitals: [String] = []

let world = [
    "BEL": "Brussels",
    "LIE": "Vaduz",
    "BGR": "Sofia",
    "USA": "Washington D.C.",
    "MEX": "Mexico City",
    "BRA": "Brasilia",
    "IND": "New Delhi",
    "VNM": "Hanoi"]

for capital in world {
    switch capital {
    case "BEL", "LIE", "BGR": europeanCapitals.append(capital)
    case "IND", "VNM": asianCapitals.append(capital)
    default: otherCapitals.append(capital)

Hi Tijn-Pieter Koopman

You are very close. The syntax is correct; however, the switch is not switching on the correct value. Remember, the dictionary contains key: value pairs, but right now you are trying to switch on the pair instead of just the key. With that in mind, when you are appending, you should also be appending the value to the new array.

I've provided a pretty detailed answer to a previous post if you'd like to have a look.

Nice work! :) :dizzy:
