student = { 'name' : '', 'topic' : 'python' }

topic = student['topic']

Accessing Items on this page may help

On an empty line beneath the existing code, create a variable called topic and assign to this variable the value of the topic key in the student dictionary. ====> Challenge Task 2

In the page I referenced you have:

Get the value of the "model" key:

x = thisdict["model"]

For task 2:

topic is the variable so substitute this for x

student is the dictionary so substitute this for thisdict

topic is also the key so substitute this for model (in quotes)
