Python Introducing Tuples Getting to Know Tuples Creating Tuples

Getting an error on the second task stating that I haven't created a tuple.

For whatever reason, I'm receiving an error that states I haven't created a tuple. The format is the exact same as the previous task, which recognized what I wrote as a tuple. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong in this instance, considering I've rechecked the formatting and on the first task it is willing to recognize what I've written as a tuple.

my_tuple = 'I', 'love', 'item3', 'python'

You've misread the challenge, you need to create a variable called item3, not insert a string manually to the tuple.

my_tuple = 'I', 'love', 'python'
item3 = # The third thing in the tuple

Hope this helps!
