I don't need an answer, give me hints what am i doing wrong?

Here's the question :

OK, I need you to finish writing a function for me. The function disemvowel takes a single word as a parameter and then returns that word at the end.

I need you to make it so, inside of the function, all of the vowels ("a", "e", "i", "o", and "u") are removed from the word. Solve this however you want, it's totally up to you!

Oh, be sure to look for both uppercase and lowercase vowels!

Good attitude! :+1: Here's a few hints:

  • the loop should be inside the function definition (instead of vice-versa)
  • the "word" will probably never be equal to an individual vowel
  • "remove" is not a string method, were you thinking of "replace"?
  • another strategy might be to convert to a list where you could use remove (and convert back later)

And for future questions, it can be more helpful to share the actual code (instead of an image), and to provide a link to the course page you are working with.
