Hi there! You're doing great and you have the syntax down pretty much. However, there's a problem here that's causing a syntax error. Remember, you may not use a variable before you have given it a value.

On line 3 of your code, you're trying to format the menu with display_menu. But at this point in your code, display_menu hasn't been defined. You don't define it until line 4. Simply changing the order of line 3 and line 4 corrects this. Your line #3 should be the one that starts with display_menu and your line #4 should be the one that starts with menu =.

Hope this helps, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:

thanx ma'am
