Must be a bug in the question.

I am pretty sure my code is correct. Can someone please check?

Thank you

creating_dictionaries.py
student = {'name':"", "topic": "python"}

topic = student["topic"]

No you are not wrong there is most certainly a bug.

In [1]: student = {'name': 'Josh Stephens', 'topic': 'python'}
   ...: topic = student['topic']

In [2]: topic
Out[2]: 'python'

Ok playing around I was able to pass it. Change the value of topic in the student dictionary to be Python with a capital p. Probably the unit tests for this is not doing a case insensitive comparison on the assertion and thus it fails. Assuming that is how they are checking the results

This was previously discovered by another student, but it probably wouldn't hurt to send another bug report in to the Support folks.
