hello what am i doing wrong here

def my_list[4,2,8,"John","george",["gregory","Jasper"]]

def my_list[4,2,8,"John","george",["gregory","Jasper"]]


The challenge is asking that you make a variable name my_list. What you have written is not declaring a variable. Let me know if you have further questions.

Hi George,

You don't need to def a list; just use the square brackets as you have done. So, just delete the def keyword, and you're good to go!

my_list = [3, 2, 1, "Steve", "Hunter", [1, 2]]
