Python Python Basics (2015) Letter Game App Random Item

I still don't get it

What else do I have to do until I can pass this?

item.py
import random 

def random_item(pen):
    pen = [
    'life'
    'love'
    'live'
    'learn'
    'eat'
    'pray'
    'enjoy'
    'happy']:

    n = random.randint(1,len(pen))
    return pen[n-1]
# EXAMPLE
# random_item("Treehouse")
# The randomly selected number is 4.
# The return value would be "h"# EXAMPLE
# random_item("Treehouse")
# The randomly selected number is 4.
# The return value would be "h"

you don't need:

    pen = [
    'life'
    'love'
    'live'
    'learn'
    'eat'
    'pray'
    'enjoy'
    'happy']:

Also, thank you for clearing things up for me Annika. Your code helped me with my code :)

import random

def random_item(y):
    x = random.randint(0,len(y))
    return y[x-1]
