I'll walk you through my solution:

class Liar(list):
    def __len__(self):
        return super().__len__() + 1 

So the challenge says that we don't need to pass it any extra parameters at all, so that means we just need to pass it self and nothing more.

So the return is calling the len from the parent class, List, and it will be called on itself, so essentially you could see it working something like len(self), and then since the return is an integer we can just add 1 to it at the end.

If you have any questions feel free to ask, and check out this thread for more info about super() if you want.
