I don't know why is given me an error I check the code in my shell and give me the right answer :

Here is the code :

def first_4(rango): b = rango[:4] print(b

def first_4(rango):
        b = rango[:4]

Hi there, igor corrales ! I received your request for assistance. First, you're doing terrific. The key here lies in the instructions. They ask you to return the value, but you're printing the value, so Treehouse isn't actually getting anything back from your code once it runs it.

If I change the last line to:

return b

Your code passes the first part of the challenge. Hope this helps! :sparkles:
