14/19 - unhelpful hint and example
What this apparently requires relates in no way to the example or the hint.
Is this a joke? I've wasted half an hour on this simple task. Now the forum's impossible to use too. Thanks codecademy!

Hi.

If you posted your code, then we might be able to actually help you.

Please cut down on the sarcasm :smile:

Agree with OP. Many "Hints" in CodeAcademy are useless. I shouldnt have to post my code to a forum for these simple tasks, and then wait hours to days for an answer. Its an obvious FAIL that all can see. Worse part is people just look up the answers elsewhere, while CodeAcadamy takes the credit, and sends useless achievements. Is that straight forward enough for you?

This code works for me

d = {'a': 'apple', 'b': 'berry', 'c': 'cherry'}

for key in d:
    # Your code here!
    print key, d[key]

Thanks a lot phisted, I was having trouble with this one as well. after the previous lessons I had gotten in to the mind set of working with lists. After looking at you code I realized I was working with the dictionary and it made much more sense.
