Quiz question on Dictionary: player["weapons"]["sword"]


The above code would work with which of the dictionaries below?


player = {
"weapons": ["sword", "bow", "stick"] }

Why is B the wrong choice? I could retry the quiz two more times, but I don't think I will learn anything if it just says "Sorry, the answer is incorrect" as feedback. Thanks!

Hi Harris,

You can use "weapons" to index into player because player is a dictionary. However, "sword" is in a list, and you can only index into lists using their position. For example: player["weapons"][0].

Hope that helps,
