What is the output this coding exercise is looking for? Is this not it?

Can someone rephrase the question? I'm not sure why my work is not being approved. Thank you :)

//edit this array
//$contacts = array('Alena Holligan', 'Dave McFarland', 'Treasure Porth', 'Andrew Chalkley');
$contacts = array(
  ['name'=>'Alena Holligan'],
  ['name'=>'Dave McFarland'],
  ['name'=>'Treasure porth'],
  ['name'=>'Andrew Chalkey']

/*$contacts[0]= array ('name' => 'Alena Holligan');
$contacts[1]= array ( 'name' => 'Dave McFarland');
$contacts[2]= array ( 'name' => 'Treasure Porth');
$contacts[3]= array ( 'name' => 'Andrew Chalkey');*/

/*$alena = array ('name' => 'Alena Holligan');
$dave = array ( 'name' => 'Dave McFarland');
$treasure = array ( 'name' => 'Treasure Porth');
$andrew  = array ( 'name' => 'Andrew Chalkey');

echo "<ul>\n";
//$contacts[0] will return 'Alena Holligan' in our simple array of names.
echo "<li>" . $contacts[0]['name'] ." : alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[1]['name'] . " : dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[2]['name'].  " : treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[3]['name'] . ": andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "</ul>\n";

/*echo "<li>Alena Holligan : alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Dave McFarland : dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Treasure Porth : treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Andrew Chalkley : andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "</ul>\n";

Your $contacts array passes the first task in the challenge. The second task asks you to add the email address as a second element.

$contacts = array(
  ['name' => 'Alena Holligan', 'email' => 'alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com'], 
  ['name' =>'Dave McFarland', 'email' =>'dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com'],
  ['name' => 'Treasure Porth', 'email' =>'treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com'], 
  ['name' => 'Andrew Chalkley', 'email' =>'andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com']

The third task will build from the proper completion of the second one. I hope this helps!
