It looks like you're attempting to call a method named values_at ON a variable called grocery_list, which doesn't exist yet.

Whenever you see an "it looks like Task X is no longer passing" error, it will be accompanied by a button labelled "Go to Task X". You should click that button, and then try the same code on that earlier task. If you do that in this case, you'll see the error "NameError: undefined local variable or method 'grocery_list' for main:Object".

I would recommend going back to the videos and ensuring you're calling values_at in the correct way.
