Hi Huseyn, Sort of but not exactly. The ["name" : "Pasan"] is a dictionary entry consisting of a String as the key ("name") and another string "Pasan" as its value. var name: String = "Pasan" is assigning a string value to the variable called name. There are similarities as both are referring to a value of type string called "Pasan" but they do it differently. - the dictionary by looking up a key, the variable by assignment and storage. Hope this helps.
