Your second example should fill "result" with the contents of "praise" followed by the number of exclamation points asked for, all separated by spaces.

praise = "You are Great"
number_of_characters = 5
result = praise + " !" * number_of_characters
print(result)    # output:   You are Great ! ! ! ! !

Thank you!
