iOS Swift Collections and Control Flow Introduction to Collections Working With Arrays

I think the check work button is messed up. I tested in xcode what I think the question is asking, but still wrong.

I got everything correct until the last line which is to remove the 6th item in arrayOfInts and assign it to a constant named discarded value.

array.swift
// Enter your code below
var arrayOfInts = [1,2,3,4,5,6]
arrayOfInts.append(0)
var randomArray = [7]
arrayOfInts += randomArray
let discardedValue = arrayOfInts.remove(at: 5)

I’m not sure what problem you are having but it appears that .remove takes the value from the specified slot +1. So .remove(at: 5) removes the sixth slot as you expected. This works perfectly in the latest version of Xcode and in playgrounds discarded value returns 6. If this is not what you are expecting then I guess I don’t understand your question. You know array keys start with position 0 not 1 right?
