i m getting Bummer: Try again on this task where am i going wrong?
Now create a variable named dt_2012 that uses filter() and is_2012 to return only the datetimes from dates that are from the year 2012.
import datetime dates = [ datetime.datetime(2012, 12, 15), datetime.datetime(1987, 8, 20), datetime.datetime(1965, 2, 28), datetime.datetime(2015, 4, 29), datetime.datetime(2012, 6, 30), ] def is_2012(argument): if argument.year == 2012: return True break dt_2012 = filter(is_2012, dates)

You really close, but a "break" is only used with a loop, and there's no loop here. Plus the indentation doesn't line up.
Just remove that line entirely and you'll pass the challenge.
i did what you advised @Steven Parker but i still get the error
just tried it and it worked i don't know what was wrong at first
Thabang Richard Katlholo I looked at Steven Parker's advice (thanks by the way) and i fixed my code this way
import datetime dates = [ datetime.datetime(2012, 12, 15), datetime.datetime(1987, 8, 20), datetime.datetime(1965, 2, 28), datetime.datetime(2015, 4, 29), datetime.datetime(2012, 6, 30), ] # Part 1 def is_2012(argument): if argument.year == 2012: # The last mistake that made me lose patience and look for help, i typed # datetime.datetime.year instead of argument.year return True else: return False
And thanks to you Thabang Richard Katlholo, your code also helped mine.
