idk how to do it

The code in the promptForCamera method presents an image picker controller, but it’s broken at the moment. We’d like to specify the source type for the image picker controller so it grabs the image from the camera. Can you fix the code below?

You're given a UIImagePickerController variable named "controller". You just need to set the property called sourceType on this controller variable. The source you want to use is a constant called "UIImagePickerControllerSourceTypeCamera". This code should work:

controller.sourceType = UIImagePickerControllerSourceTypeCamera;
