PHP Object-Oriented PHP Basics Building the Recipe Accessing Arrays

Some unclear or incorrect instructions in challenge 4/5 of Accessing Arrays

In task 4 you are asked:

Time to add a NEW associative array named $favorite_colors. The keys will be, in order, the following: 'mike', 'jane', 'chris' with values for each. Thos values are 'green', 'blue', 'red'

To complete the exercise you also have to var_dump() the resulting array but this is not stated in the question.

In task 5 you are asked:

Now using the $favorite_colors array, echo mike's favorite color.

Going by the code of the previous exercise which we build on mike's favorite color would be green. The result of the following code:

echo $favorite_colors['mike']; // prints green

To complete the task however you have to print the favorite color blue which belongs to jane.

echo $favorite_colors['jane']; // prints blue

For the sake of thoroughness I'm running Google Chrome with the following version number and extensions:

  • Version 70.0.3538.77 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • uBlock Origin (v.1.17.0)
