confused with the statement "Use the list.sort() method " is that just creating a sort method in SortedInventory?
I am confused by the statment
Use the list.sort() method to make sure the slots list gets sorted after an item is added. Only do this in the SortedInventory class.
I don't know they want a method named sorted on the subclass or something else
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(item)

Inventory is not sorted. However, a
SortedInventory is. In order to guarantee this, you need to re-sort the list each time a new item is added. A Python
list already has a built-in method called
sort, which sorts the list. For example:
numbers = [3, 5, 2, 4, 1] numbers.sort() print(numbers) # prints [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
All you need to do is call this method on
slots to sort it after you add an item to it
