How to solve below code and please explain it's bit difficult to me to understand. First, create a class named RaceCar. In the init for the class, take arguments for color and fuel_remaining. Be sure to set these as attributes on the instance.

Also, use setattr to take any other keyword arguments that come in.

racecar.py
class RaceCar:
    def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining):
        setattr(

Your almost there!

You successfully created a class and allowed arguments for color and fuel_remaining to be given.

To set these as attributes on the instance of the class you can use setattr() or with dot notation.

For example to add a color attribute of "blue" to a class named Eye, you could either do:

class Eye:
    def __init__(self, color):
        setattr(self, color, "blue")
#  or
class Eye:
    def __init__(self, color):
        self.color = blue
