I'm assuming here that you're working on step one. All we're going to do here is set up a variable named "sundaes". Then we're going to take the flavors in the "available" string and split them at the semicolon. That will go into our new sundaes variable. Take a look at my solution:

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white";
sundaes = available.split(';');
