Update the NobleGases method to return a slice consisting of six strings

I've been stumped on this one for a couple nights now. The preceding training videos do not show how to work with a slice in the same line as the function declaration, and it's throwing me off.

How do I append things to that slice and then return it? Or do I need to create a new slice?

Edit - finally got it. I still found this question and its preceding training to be unclear.

package elements

func NobleGases() []string {
  s := []string{"He", "Ne", "Ar", "Kr", "Xe", "Rn"}
  return s

You can return the slice straight ahead if you're not going to use it for anything else, there is no need to do the variable initialization : )
