Please help I don't know what is wrong this code.

full_name = "Osman farah"
name_list = full_name.split()
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm Treehouse".split()
greeting_list[2] = [Osman]

Ok I just figured it out myself as I was a bit stuck.

Rather than just replacing an entry with your manually entered name here: greeting_list[2] = [Osman] you need to pull your first name from the original name list like so:

greeting_list[2] = name_list[0]

Thanks Nicolas
