In dicts.py my approach to adding a list value to the dictionary is not working.

Any suggestion? Thanks.

dicts.py
player = {"name" : "Iain" , "remaining_lives" : 3}
player["levels"] = [1,2,3,4] , 
player["items"] = {"key1" : 5 }

There's a stray comma at the end of the second line causing a syntax error.

Other than that, good job! :+1:
