Python Object-Oriented Python (retired) Inheritance Override Inherited Methods

Animal.noise() returns self.sound.lower(). Make Sheep.noise() return the uppercased version of the instance's sound.

def noise(self): return self.noise.upper()

thats my code and its giving me 'Try again' error!! How am i supposed to do it

sheep.py
from animal import Animal
class Sheep(Animal):
  sound = 'bleat'


  def noise(self):
     return self.noise.upper()  

your noise method needs to be :

def noise(self): return self.sound.upper()

i Hoop this will solve your problem.

You are trying to return the name of the method, rather than the variable name you used for the animal sound.
