I really don't get his question.
I really don't get his question. What do I need to do with my_list? I don't get the second and third sentence of the question. From the video I understand I need to print the range and use the numbers for it, but what about the append?
my_list =  for a in range(0, 10): print(a)

Hey Sharon Zonneveld, let’s break it down:
- Write a for loop that iterates over a range with a stop value of 10 (assume the start value is 0 and the step value is 1). ✅
The body of the for loop should append the current value (your
avariable) to the provided list called my_list. A
listhas an append. This modifies a list in place so no = assignment is needed.
To append a value to a list, use the syntax my_list.append(val). is an example of how to use the method. In this case, the loop variable is
Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
Instead of using the print() function, you need to use the append() method.
Right now, you're simply printing the current item to the console. However, instead of printing the item, you need to add it to the my_list - or append it (same thing). At the beginning my_list is empty, but once you run that for-loop with the append method inside, items that you're looping over, get added to the my_list one-by-one.
The 'item' in this case is a number - but can be also e.g. a string or another list.
Every list you declare has the append() method + tons of more! https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/datastructures.html
