Where is my mistake

I don't see my mistake here... also all the other steps were correct, why is this one wrong???

var todo = ["Learn Swift", "Build App", "Deploy App"]
todo.append("Debug App")
todo.append("Fix Bugs")
let item = todo.removeAtIndex(1)
todo.insert("Learn iOS", atIndex: 3)

The task wants you to insert the new string at the second position in the array. Because Swift uses 0-based indexing, you're adding it at the fourth position (0 is first, 1 is second, 2 is third, 3 is fourth). So you should use atIndex: 1.

Also, I noticed that you've removed two items from the list in previous step. That's different than what I did, which was to remove one item at index 2. That might also be causing problems with the grading.
