i've given you a start:

$contacts = array( 
  array ('name'=>'Alena Holligan'),
  'Dave McFarland',
  'Treasure Porth',
  'Andrew Chalkley'

Next, you'll need to make the other names into arrays. After this, you add an email element for each of the people emails, then use to array to produce output.
