Hi Simon,

Your job here is to modify the method in a way, that the method returns the hash. Right now you create a new variable and assign it to the hash. You need to create the hash inside of the method.

Here is an example:

def create_shopping_list
  Hash["title" => "Grocery List", "items" => []]
end
