Whats wrong in this code?

this is the challenge: Challenge task 2 of 3 Switch to the implementation file and implement a 'quotes' method which will allocate and initialize the _quotes instance variable only if it is 'nil'. Initialize the array with any three strings.

This is my code -(NSArray *) quotes{ if(_quotes == nil){ _quotes = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects:@"1", @"2", @"3", nil]; } return _quotes }

And it keeps giving this error: Bummer! Remember to allocate and initialize the instance variable '_quotes' and return it from the method named 'quotes'.

I dont understand what is this challenge expecting? and I cant even proceed.

Actually ignore this. I just realized the ";" at the end of return _quotes is missing

Hi Parag, nice job and no worries, it happens to all of us lol.
