Write it down like this:

var todo = ["Learn Swift", "Build App", "Deploy App"]

todo.append ("Debug App") todo.append ("Fix Bugs")

You can only append one thing at a time.

I think you can only append one item at a time using the .append method. So.... todo.append("Debug App") todo.append("Fix Bugs")

You could however using the todo += method to add multiples at one time or the .extend method also, more info on these can be found on-line docs for swift.

omg thank you so much, this is my first time coding, so thank you :)
