Hi there, Clainos! In most cases, when you receive an error about "Task 1 is no longer passing" it's because you've introduced a syntax error into your code. This means that the code is no longer able to be compiled/interpreted. This is the case here.

In your code, on line 3, you try and format a string using the display_menu, but display_menu isn't defined until line 4. Try reversing the order of line 3 and line 4.

I think you can get it with these hints, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:

thanks for saving me some precious moments
