I don't see how this is wrong.

My code works. I don't see why my code is wrong. Could someone, please, enlighten me. Thanks.

unpacking.py
def unpacker(*args):

    args = list(args)
    val1, val2 = args[0], args[1]
    return val1, val2

val = unpacker('Python', 'rocks!')

Working or not, the code isn't doing what the instructions asked for.

They said, "Edit the variable assignment under the provided function...". ย  So you should not make any changes to the function itself, only to the bottom line.
