In section 11 of this tutorial, we are asked to assign movie names to the symbols/keys, and descriptions to the values. That does not work. When I asked for the solution, the code was written so that the description of the movie was in the key/symbol position and the name of the movie was in the value position. What is the deal?

The exact prompt:

Create a hash called movies with symbols as keys and strings as values.

Inside your hash, add two key/value pairs.

The keys should be the names of movies.

The values should be quick descriptions or reviews.

The solution:

movies = {
:children => “Moana”,
:scifi => “Mortal Kombat”,
:history => “Lincoln”

This is wrong, right?

For me that way works

movies = {:London_calling => " I love histories", :Blue_lagon => “To young” }
