Why I cannot go ahead here?

They keep saying i need to go to task one, but I passed apparently successfully for the task one. I dont know at all what is wrong there. Nothing seems to be wrong for me.

$(document).ready(function() {
  var weatherAPI = 'http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather';
  var data = {
    q: "Busan, Korea";
<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>What's the Weather Like?</title>
  <script src="jquery.js"></script>
  <script src="weather.js"></script>
  <div id="main">
    <h1>Current temperature: <span id="temperature"></span>&deg;</h1>

Task 1 asks you to create a variable and assign it to an empty object which I'm assuming you did right :-)

var data = {}

Task 2 asks you to add a property to the data object. Your error occurs because of the semicolon at the end of the property value.

  var data = {
    q : 'Portland,OR'

Task 3 asks you to add another property. Use a comma to separate it from the first one.

  var data = {
    q : 'Portland,OR',
    units : 'metric'

Should be good to go!
