Hi Egor,

The correct method to call is setValue:forKey: in order to add the new value to the mutable array. Also the challenge said to add the key and value as NSString, you forgot the " around 1969.

The code that passes the challenge is below:

NSDictionary *album =@{@"title" :@"Abbey Road",@"artist":@"The Beatles"};
NSDictionary *albumMutable = [NSMutableDictionary dictionaryWithDictionary:album];
[albumMutable setValue:@"1969" forKey:@"year"];
