Filter Challenge Task 2 of 2 Bummer: dt_2012 isn't a filter!
I am completely stuck on this challenge. I know my task 1 code doesn't allow dt_2012 to filter through anything, but I can't figure out how to make it filter friendly.
Here are the instructions:
Task 1: Write a function named is_2012 that accepts a single argument and returns whether that argument's year attribute is equal to 2012.
Task 2: Now create a variable named dt_2012 that uses filter() and is_2012 to return only the datetimes from dates that are from the year 2012.
Thanks in advance! :)
import datetime dates = [ datetime.datetime(2012, 12, 15), datetime.datetime(1987, 8, 20), datetime.datetime(1965, 2, 28), datetime.datetime(2015, 4, 29), datetime.datetime(2012, 6, 30), ] def is_2012(argument): if argument.year == 2012: return True def dt_2012(dates): return filter(is_2012, dates)

Note that instruction say "Now create a variable named dt_2012 ..."
You're calling the filter function correctly, but you're defining another function named "dt_2012" instead of creating a variable with that name and assigning the filter result to it.
