Can somebody rephrase the question, without giving the solution?

I don't understand the question or task, making it impossible to solve. So can somebody rephrase this question, without giving the solution?

Create a function named nchoices() that takes an iterable and an integer. The function should return a list of n random items from the iterable where n is the integer. Duplicates are allowed.

1 Answer

The challenge is asking you to take an iterable and an integer (exactly as it said), and return a list of n (the integer is n) random numbers from the iterable.

Here are the steps to take:

  1. Add a random value from the iterable to a list.
  2. Repeat that n times (where n is the integer)

Good luck! ~alex
