why is option not taking nil as its argument?

let weatherDic: NSDictionary = NSJSONSerialization.JSONObjectWithData(dataObject, options: nil, error: nil)

the error points to "options: nil" and says cannot convert the expression's type (NSData? options: NilLiteralConvertible error: NilLiteralConvertible) to type NilLiteralConvertible.

Any help hugely appreciated!

I think that's just the default value for "options". Are you trying to resolve your error? or just curious?
