In your SortedInventory(Inventory) class, you have used a method list.sort() but the problem is that what is this list you want to sort? There is no variable or list by the name of list in your code, If you are looking for a list in your code then what I can find is the self.slots = [] which is obviously a list.

Try using the sort method πŸ‘‰list.sort() on self.slots instead, ALSO πŸ‘‡

class SortedInventory(Inventory):
    def add_item(self, item):
        #Don't put the sort method in this line of code, use if after the super() method ❌
        super().add_item(item)
       #Put it here  πŸ‘ˆβœ”

Do these changes, if the problem persists, post back here again
