Python Object-Oriented Python Inheritance Super!

I'm totally lost

I want to use the list.sort() method to make sure the slots list gets sorted after an item is added.

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

    def add_item(self, item):
        self.slots.append(item)

class SortedInventory(Inventory):
    def add_item(self, item):
        super().add_item(item)
        list.sort(item)

You are super close! Since the attribute self.slots is defined as a list, it has the same .sort() method available.

Let’s see if you can make the finally leap on your own. Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

You are the bomb Chris. It worked.
