Import re. Create an re.match() for the word "Four" in the data variable. Assign this to a new variable named first.

  1. import re
  2. file_object = open("basics.txt")
  3. data = file_object.read()
  4. file_object.close()
  5. first = r 'Four'
  6. print(re.match(first))
import re
file_object = open("basics.txt")
data = file_object.read()
first = r'Four'
print(re.match(first, data))

You are very close. The variable four should be assigned the results of the re.match:

first = re.match(r'Four', data)

The last Task has a similar solution with a different variable and a different string value.

Post back if you need more help. Good Luck!
