Here's the line they're looking for:

var cart = shoppingList[1]

Here we take the variable cart and then use subscripting (ie pointing to the specific index of an item) and assign it into cart. We want bread and because this language uses 0 indexing (it starts counting at 0) "bread" will have an index of 1. Hope that clarifies things!

Thank you very much
