Objective C basics - make a char array called letters size 2 with alpha as the first variable

char letters[] = {'a', 'b'}; printf(%c is alpha and %c is bravo.\n", letters[0], letters[1]);

This is the only thing that works when I put it into Xcode but it does not work in the challenge. This is exactly how he shows to do an int or float array in the video unfortunately he never demonstrates a char array in the video.

I tried

char letters[] = {alpha, bravo}; in Xcode and Xcode didn't like it so I used {a, b} and Xcode didn't like it so I used {'a', 'b'} and Xcode liked it but the challenge won't accept it. What the heck does it want.

I figured it out. This is the answer for any other newbies who are struggling like me.

char alpha;
alpha = 'a';
char bravo;
bravo = 'b';
char letters[] = {alpha, bravo};

printf("letters %c %c\n", letters[0], letters[1]);

What's his face in the video should not assume we have psychic powers. He never demonstrated a char array
