Can someone correct this code? Many thanks in advance.

It seems my last line is incorrect and after many tries, I am unable to make it work. Thanks again!

membership.py
store_open = None
store_hours = [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18]
if time in store-hours:
  store_open = 1
  else:
    store_open = 0

In Python, indentation is everything. An else must always be indented the same amount as the matching if.

Also, you have a little typo: a hyphen (-) instead of an underscore (_) in the variable name store_hours.

if time in store_hours:
  store_open = 1
else:
  store_open = 0
