I'm stuck.

I don't know how to complete the last task. Can you help me?

sheep.py
from animal import Animal
class Sheep(Animal):
  sound = 'meh'

1 Answer

It's asking you to override the noise() method so that Sheep.noise() can return something different from what Animal.noise() returns.

This means you need to define a noise method in your sheep class.

To get you started:

from animal import Animal

class Sheep(Animal):
  sound = 'meh'

  def noise(self):
    # return statement here

It tells you what Animal.noise() returns and what it would like Sheep.noise() to return.

Let me know if you're still stuck.
