You won't need to print anything.

The challenge wants you to write code "that sets store_open to True if time is in the store_hours list." So you would be doing an assignment to set the value of store_open.

You have a good start with your if statement (but don't forget the colon (":") at the end). Now you'd make an assignment using True to go with that if. And then you'd want an else: and another assignment to take care of the other possibility.
