Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types Specific Index value

Bug on indexes challenge

So, when I add the code for task #1, it passes and moves me to task #2; however, when trying to complete task #2, I get an error saying "Oops! It looks like Task 1 no longer works"

I ran my code in the Python REPL and got exactly what the challenge is asking for, so I am not sure what I'm doing wrong.

var_one = ["a", "b", "c", "d", "e", "t"]

var_two = ["e", "f"]

print(var_one[5])

print(var_two[-2])

index.py
var_one = ["a", "b", "c", "d", "e", "t"]

var_two ["e", "f"]

Any syntax error invalidates the entire code and causes the re-checks to fail.

In this case, the issue is a missing assignment operator ("=") on the second line.
