What did i do wrong?

On the line after bestSmartphone, create an array named favoriteSports of type String and store the strings "football", "basketball" and "tennis" in it.

my code:

var favoriteSportsArray = ["football"] favoriteSportsArray.append("basketball") favoriteSportsArray.append["tennis"]

You are supposed to use an array literal:

var favoriteSports = ["football", "basketball", "tennis"]

let bestSmartphone = "iPhone" var favoriteSports = ["football", "basketball", "tennis"]

consecutive statements on a line must be separated by a semi-colon.

<p>let bestSmartphone: String = "iPhone"; var favoriteSports: [String] = ["football", "basketball", "tennis"] </p>
