In the video they showed strings the test wants integers

I'm not getting how to do this. Showing us how to do something before they test us make this learning process much easier. Maybe this was taught in Python basics. A refresher before the test would be nice. Happens here so much. I'm ready to quit and save the $25 a month!

player = {"name": "Jim", "remaining_lives": 3}
player = {"levels": 1 2 3 4, "items": {"number": 7}

You have the right idea, but the levels value needs to be a list so the numbers should be surrounded by [ ]'s. Also, you need to do this all in one line as by assigning these key's & values the second time will reset the first assignment.

Your code should look like this then:

player = {"name" : "daniel", "remaining_lives" : 3, "levels" : [1,2,3,4], "items" : {"sword" : 1}}
