Got the wrong string(s), what am I doing wrong?

I checked the code on my computer and it returns a touple with all lowercase, all uppercase, first letter capitalised, and reversed. But Treehouse keeps returning the error "got the wrong string(s)", what am I doing wrong?

stringcases.py
def stringcases(string):
    l = list(string)
    reversed = str()
    while l:
        reversed += ''.join(l.pop())
    return (string.upper(), string.lower(), string.capitalize(), reversed)

Hiya Fabian! You dont have to any of that to get reverse of a string. This might help ya a lot.

def stringcases(string):
    return (string.upper(), string.lower(), string.title(), string[::-1])
