# Bummer! Try again!

I have rewritten this multiple ways but nothing works.

item.py
```import random

def random_item(iterable):
number = random.randint(index(iterable)
final = number -1
return final
# EXAMPLE
# random_item("Treehouse")
# The randomly selected number is 4.
# The return value would be "h"
```

Hey there!

So you are super close! Let's start by looking at how to use the "`random.randint()`" function. The documentation says:

```random.randint(a, b)
# Return a random integer N such that a <= N <= b.
```

This means that we need to pass it 2 integers, a and b, and it will pick a number between them.

For example:

```>>> random.randint(5, 10)
6
>>> random.randint(-3, 7)
-1
```

So getting back to the challenge's problem statement: "`Then use random.randint() to get a random number between 0 and the length of the iterable, minus one.`". We want a range between "`0`" and "`length of iterable`". That means that your "`a`" input will be "`0`" and your "`b`" input will be the length of your iterable array.

The final issue that you have is that you need to return the item, not the index of the item. Hint: `return item[index]`.

Hopefully this helps solve your issue! If not or something is still not clear, feel free to reply to the comment!
