See the previous video @ 2:29.

Or you could see the example in the teacher's notes (or in the docs). The one in the teacher's notes is close to what the challenge is asking:

>>> import datetime
>>> now = datetime.datetime.now()
>>> morning = now.replace(hour=9, minute=0)

You basically can take an existing date and replace parts by specifying the date part to replace along with a new value. The above takes now and replaces the hour with 9 and the minute with 0.
