Code Challenge: Super! Task 2

Not sure where I have gone wrong. I have rewatcehd the videos and even tried to follow them changing the appropriate arguments, and when I check my work, all I get is "Bummer: Try again"

inventory.py
class Inventory:
    def __init__(self):
        self.slots = []

    def add_item(self, item):
        self.slots.append(item)

class SortedInventory(Inventory):
    def add_item(self, item):
        super().add_item(self, item)

Task 1 was to create the SortedInventory class calling on the Inventory class.

Taks 2 is "Great! Now override the add_item method. Use super() in it to make sure the item still gets added to the list."

When you declare a method, "self" is the first parameter, but when you call a method, you don't need to explicitly pass "self" as an argument. The system provides that for you.

Thank you!

Thanks Steven Parker! This explanation really works for me! You're the hero we all deserve.
