Couldn't understand the mistake

Help me solve this

method.py
class Store:
    open = 9 
    close = 22

def hours(self):
    return "We're open from {} to {}.".format(self.open, self.close)

So everything else is perfect besides your variable open. This is a keyword already set in Python that you are unable to use as your own set variable. If you change your variable to something like open_time it will work.

In this case, task 1 instructions specifically tell you to name it that way. You won't be able to pass with a different name.

It seems we have to leave the open as it is. But we have to indent the hours method. Thank you.

Hi Vishnu,

You have to indent the hours method 1 level so that it's part of the class.
