Correct the import style

I dont see why this is wrong?

starter.py
import os
import sys
import logging
from re
import match
import search

It should look like this:

import os
import sys
import logging
from re import match
from re import search

For some reason it requires you to have an empty space at the end as well. You also need to specify where you import match and search from.

thanks he i must have missed out on what from re is

I'm still NOT getting it!

import os import sys import logging from re import match from re import search

Maybe coding isn't for me

I still don't know how to eliminate whitespaces but somehow I had to play around with it...must be magic or the luck of the draw idk......finally aced challenge
