I can't figure out how to complete this challenge

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 (key, value) in world { // Enter your code below switch world { case "BEL", "LIE", "BGR": europeanCapitals.append("Bruseels", "Vaduz", "Sofia") case "IND", "VNM": asianCapitals.append("New Delhi", "Hanoi") case "USA", "MEX", "BRA": otherCapitals.append("Washington D.C.", "Mexico City", "Brasilia") default: print("You might want to check that city") // End code }

Some hints from the instructions:

  • use a switch statement and switch on the key
  • append the value
  • for the default case, append the values to otherCapitals
