Python Write Better Python Cleaner Code Function and Class Whitespace

Challenge Task 1 of 1 not responding right . . . ?

I keep getting the error: "Bummer! Your file has 1 error(s) on line(s) 13: no newline at end of file." This is preventing me to move forward.

I have checked and rechecked the file for this 'newline' error and cannot find it. I even deleted all the code and retyped it! Am I missing something or is the an error with this exercise?


Thanks in advance.

def first_function(arg1):
    return 'arg1 is {}'.format(arg1)

def second_function(arg1):
    return 'arg1 is {}'.format(arg1)

class MyClass:
    args = [1, 2, 3]

    def class_func(self):
        return self.args

Add an empty new line 14 (containing no spaces).

Syntax and style checkers such as pylint look for this empty last line as evidence that all statements have been intentionally completed and indented properly. More on pylint's Final newline missing message.

Thank you.
