'Add theme settings for configuration' - Error message of 'unexpected token' keeps coming up!?

Hello everyone,

I'm following instructions on shopify developers to create a 'How did you hear about us form field' for my website. FYI I am using safari on a Mac. Everything was working fine until I got to the step of 'Add theme settings for configuration.' In the Config. directory of settings_schema-json, the current code (below) already exists:

[
{
"name": "theme_info",
"theme_name": "Themekit template theme",
"theme_version": "1.0.0",
"theme_author": "Shopify",
"theme_documentation_url": "https:\/\/github.com\/Shopify\/themekit",
"theme_support_url": "https:\/\/github.com\/Shopify\/themekit\/issues"
}
]

I'm trying to add to that code with the code pasted below from shopify developers, which I'm told to paste on a new line below the closing curly bracket (above). But each time I do that and hit save, two error messages come up (see attached screenshot at bottom of post). The messages read 'An error prevented settings_schema.json from being saved' and 'Invalid JSON: unexpected token.' Does anybody have any idea what's going wrong here? I would be very grateful as I'm brand new to coding and this is the first time I've tried to make any changes to my website!

Thanks, Cosmo.
