Bummer in task using "in"

Hi, I'm getting the error "store_open is not True" and the script seems to be OK.

membership.py
store_open = None
store_hours = [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18]
time = 11  # delete this line
if time in store_hours:
    store_open = True
else:
    store_open = False

Remove your time assignment - the challenge says that the teacher will provide time value - you just test for time.

Make sense?

If you overwrite what he sets the value to, the code will throw strange results. Delete your line:

time = 11

I added a comment in your code ...

You are right, it works once the "time" assignment is deleted. Thank you!

Hi there,

I can't see anything wrong with your code; I just passed the challenge with this which looks identical:

store_open = None
store_hours = [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18]

if time in store_hours:
    store_open = True
else:
    store_open = False

Did you fully indent your options inside the if statement? It needs 4 chars indentation, I think.

Steve.
