Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types Specific Index value

I need help

Let's practice with indexes! Make a new variable named var1 that is either a list or a string. Make sure that var1[5], the item with an index value of 5, is the letter "t".

varl = [e,r,f,t,t,t,t]

You are missing the apostrophes around each letter that makes them string types.

var1 = ['e','r','f','t','t','t','t']

The easiest would have been to make a string i.e.

var1 = 'erftttt'
