Yes, you are, Vy Nguyen, almost there!

Just a remember a few things:

  1. The type (string, integer/number, etc.) of the object property's values matters. Check it again and you'll notice the population property is an integer, not a string (therefore, no quotation marks there unless you want it to be a string).

  2. The comma is used to separate different properties (key/value pairs), but not to end one. So the final comma should not be there.

  3. Most importantly, colon vs equals: colon is used when you define the object, like in this challenge above, right? But when you assign a value to a property is just like when you do it with a variable, with equals sign.

Does that clear things up a bit? Otherwise, feel free to follow up here, commenting your doubts.
