I am stuck on a challenge and can't find a solution for weeks :(

Hello, I am a new one here.  I am following the trailhead challenge but I am stuck on one of them for the past 2 weeks. 

Create a Custom Object and Custom Fields 

- Create a Custom Object
- Create a Custom Object Tab
- Create Custom Fields
- Create Energy Audit Records

The challenge basically needs to follow the steps of the program.
I finished all those steeps but I have an error saying
" The 'Type_of_Installation__c' field isn't the correct field type. Make sure it's a Picklist field and try again."

I don't really understand this error message and can't find information online regarding this topic 

I create a new playground and follow the steps in the challenge. 
When I finished again the same error. 

Does anyone have hints for me ??? it's been 2 weeks and I can't find a challange listproper solution.

Hi Robert,

Delete the field "Type of Installation" which you have created. 

Now create a new field , chose Picklist as data type, enter the  label as "Type of Installation" 
and under value, select as "Enter values, with each value separated by a new line" 
as shown below :-

Try this and let us know if you still face the error.
