Adding a term to "pass" causes a syntax error.

And the instructions don't say this, but apparently the challenge expects the new argument to be named "args".

You might want to make a bug report to the Support folks about that second issue. If you're the first to spot it, you should get an "Exterminator" badge! :beetle:
