$contacts = array(
  array ('name'=>'Alena Holligan',
        'email'=> 'alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com'),
  array('name'=>'Dave McFarland',
  array('name'=>'Treasure Porth',
  array('name'=>'Andrew Chalkley',

echo $contacts[0]['name'] . ": " . $contacts[0]['email']. "<br /> ";
echo $contacts[1]['name'] . ": " . $contacts[1]['email']. "<br /> ";
echo $contacts[2]['name'] . ": " . $contacts[2]['email']. "<br /> ";

Close! You are using the variables properly, but you've changed the structure of the HTML. The original code used an unordered list (ul / li) for the output lines, but here you have text with individual line brakes.

To pass the challenge, re-create the original structure using your variables:

<?php   //...
echo "<ul>\n";  // keep the ul (and the li's)
echo "<li>" . $contacts[0]['name'] . " : " . $contacts[0]['email'] . "</li>\n";
echo "</ul>\n";
