Hi Abdul

You want to set store_open to True if the number held in time is in the array store_hours. Otherwise (else) set store_open to False.

This could look like:

if time in store_hours:
    store_open = True
    store_open = False

So, we check is time held inside store_hours with the line if time in store_hours. If it is, we set store_open to True. Otherqwise, it gets set to False.

I hope that helps,
