Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types Use .split() and .join()

don't understand this question regarding the .split() method of lists

It keeps giving an error message to .split() available but not sure what it is asking.

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white".split(';')

The str variable 'available' is already written out, you're doing more work than you need to by typing it out again. Use split with the 'available' variable in the 'sundaes' variable: sundaes = available.split(';')
