Keys and Auto-incrementing quiz in Database foundations

I am so confused. In the second question about altering the t_movies table in this quiz I'm guessing I'm missing something because this is what I typed at it was considered wrong:

ALTER t_movies ADD COLUMN pk_id INTEGER AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY FIRST

What am I missing

I'm sorry I really should work for my answers more before posting on the forums. I figured it out. I was missing the TABLE key word near the beginning.

I can see this is an old post but I had a few issues with this, I don't think the question was explained very well. So just in case anyone else ends up here and are having similar problems, the working answer is as follows:

ALTER TABLE t_movies ADD COLUMN pk_id INTEGER AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY FIRST
