Python Dates and Times in Python (2014) Dates and Times now() and .replace()

Can't replace minute

two.replace(minute = 30)

Doesn't work. "Bummer! two's minute is 5. It should be 30

import datetime
now = datetime.datetime.now()
two = now.replace(hour = 14)
two.replace(minute = 30)

You need to update the variable "two." The .replace() method does not update the variable automatically, it just returns a value with the piece replaced. Try:

two = two.replace(minute = 30)
