doesnt pass but says "does your 'dragon' class extend monster"

i dont know wat to do next

import random

COLORS = ['yellow', 'red', 'blue', 'green']

class Monster:
    min_hit_points = 1
    max_hit_points = 1
    min_experience = 1
    max_experience = 1
    weapon = 'sword'
    sound = 'roar'

    def __init__(self, **kwargs):
        self.hit_points = random.randint(self.min_hit_points, self.max_hit_points)
        self.experience = random.randint(self.min_experience, self.max_experience)
        self.color = random.choice(COLORS)

        for key, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, key, value)

    def battlecry(self):
        return self.sound.upper()

# passing the Monster class inside of parentheses, tells Python that Goblin is a subclass of monster, which means Goblin has all the attrs of Monsters unless modified within Goblinclass Goblin(Monster): 
    max_hit_points = 3
    max_experience = 2
    sound = 'squeak'

class Troll(Monster):
    min_hit_points = 3
    max_hit_points = 5
    min_experience = 2
    max_experience = 6
    sound = 'growl'
class Dragon(Monster):
    min_hit_points = 5
    max_hit_points = 10
    min_experience = 6
    max_experience = 10
    sound = 'raaaaaaaaaaaar'

Hello Anthony.

Where does all that code come from? I see a blank file to start the code challenge, and we are only asked to create a dragon class with one attribute only.

I imagine this would be around 3 lines of code in total.

Not sure if this question points to the right challenge though, because to solve the challenge linked to this question you would only need to import Monster from monster and than create the Dragon class which extends Monster.
