You have the function set up correctly. However, you don’t really need to declare optional “1” as a parameter. This just tells your function where to start the index. So instead of your index starting at 0, which it will by default, it will start at 1 since you declared this.

The error you’re running into is in your print statement. The interpolation of the string is correct. However, the system wants to see it as two separate print lines.

print(f’{index}’) print(f’{item}’)

Or just

print(index) print(item)

Hope this helps and happy coding!

You were just a step a head by trying to combine the two. ;)

Thanks a bunch!
