I have no clues how to do what's asked

Can you show me how ?

//edit this array
$contacts = array('Alena Holligan', 'Dave McFarland', 'Treasure Porth', 'Andrew Chalkley');[]=
$name[Alena Holligan]= [];
$name[Dave McFarland]= [];
$name[Treasure Porth]= [];
$name[Andrew Chalkey]= [];

echo "<ul>\n";
//$contacts[0] will return 'Alena Holligan' in our simple array of names.
echo "<li>Alena Holligan : alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Dave McFarland : dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Treasure Porth : treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Andrew Chalkley : andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "</ul>\n";

I have put a code snippet below that will get you on the right track. But in short you want to make an array ($contacts) that contains all of the other arrays. You'll later use the first array ($contacts) to access the internal arrays.

$contacts = array(
  array('name' => 'Alena Holligan'), 
  array('name' => 'Dave McFarland'), 
  array('name' => 'Treasure Porth'), 
  array('name' => 'Andrew Chalkley')

After the first step you'll add to those internal arrays with a new key (email) and it should look as follows:

$contacts = array(
  array('name' => 'Alena Holligan', 'email' => 'alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com'),
  // And so on
