Not understanding how to complete this can anyone help?

Can anyone help me with this?

hash.rb
hash = { "name" => "Bread", "quantity" => 1, "calories" => 100 }
Hash.has_key?("calories")
food = {"food" => "true"}

1 Answer

This challenge is a little confusing in its wording, but what you are expected to do is set the result of the has_key? method on the hash variable (not the Hash class as you have done) to a second variable called "food".

food = hash.has_key?("calories")
