What syntax error is present?
It keeps showing a "syntax error"
var coordinates [,]

You're missing the assignment operator ("=") after "coordinates".
Also, and it won't cause an error, but at this point (since they asked for "an empty array literal") you only need one pair of braces on the other side of the assignment.
And while technically optional, it's always a "best practice" to add a semicolon at the end of a statement.
