Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Tuples Stringcases

Error message: upper and lower cases??!!

I have checked this independently and it worked fine for all the cases.

def stringcases(words):
    words_tup = words.lower(), words.upper(), words.title(),words[::-1]
    return words_tup

stringcases('buGGy TrEeHouse COMPILER!!')

The code challenge isn't buggy. It's just very picky. Note that you have the lower()-ed version of the string before the upper()-ed version of the string. Try it with the uppercase version first, then the lowercase version.

Transform this line:

words_tup = words.lower(), words.upper(), words.title(),words[::-1]

Into this:

words_tup = words.upper(), words.lower(), words.title(), words[::-1]

And you should be good to go :wink:

oh yea, I got it going thanks for pointing that out!

No problem! :)
