The "items" method returns both keys and values together as tuples.

If you only want one or the other, there is a "keys" method and a "values" method.

I still don't get it. Do I use "keys" or "values" as my answer? Also is this for Task 2? Or a different one?

They are both answers, but to different questions.

Annnndd that was never mentioned in the lesson. I guess that was something we were supposed to find online. Lol.

Yeah I had looked everywhere for it, relistened to the video, checked previous cheat sheets and re-read a lot of the lessons before i realized it simply wasn't mentioned. Glad to have found my answer here though. At his level is it just .items, .keys and .values that we should be worried about or is there more things we should already know?
