Python Object-Oriented Python Inheritance Super!

I tried to use super() just like we did in the previous video, but I am not sure what is wrong.

I don't fully grasp this yet, what do I need to change in my code?

class Inventory:
    def __init__(self):
        self.slots = []

    def add_item(self, item):
class SortedInventory(Inventory):

You are asked to override the add_item method which you have not yet done. By overriding, the subclass/child SortedInventory should re-declare the method with the same name and provide it's own implementation. Your super() should be called on the child class which in turn will run the parent's add_item.
