If you insist:

my_list = [1,
           ["I'm a string, and the first element in the second list",
            "I'm another string, and the second element in the list within a list"]

Here is what I did....

my_list = [1,2,3, "perfect", " tanatswa", [1, "drey"]]

Thanks a lot....it worked

First off, you probably want a comma between 3 and "perfect" in your list.

Secondly, this challenge wants exactly 6 items in a list, with the last item being another list that itself contains 2 items. So after you add your comma to separate the third and fourth elements, you'll want to add in that final list item after "Tanatswa",

Can you write the list for me so that I can get the clear picture
