I dont understand the challege

Let's pretend a customer has ordered an ice cream. Retrieve the value for apple pie using the correct key and assign it to a constant named applePie.

dictionary.swift
// Enter your code below
var iceCream = ["CC": "Chocolate Chip", 
"AP": "Apple Pie", 
"PB": "Peanut Butter"]

iceCream.updateValue("Rocky Road", forKey: "RR")

 iceCream.removeValue(forKey:"AP" )

It's more than likely that you're overthinking task 3. It doesn't want you to update a value or add a new key value pair or anything like that. All it is asking you to do is select the "Apple Pie" value and assign it to a constant named applePie:

var iceCream = [
  "CC": "Chocolate Chip", 
  "AP": "Apple Pie", 
  "PB": "Peanut Butter"]

iceCream.updateValue("Rocky Road", forKey: "RR")
let applePie = iceCream["AP"]

Hey ! You just simply have to declare a constant named "applePie" with value of "Apple Pie" taken from the dictionary with the correct key :)! Was this helpful ?
