I'm not sure why you're having trouble. I pasted your code line directly into the challenge and it passed.

You may need to talk to the Support staff about this issue.

Hi Terry,

Do you have any extra spaces or tabs in your code? Python is very sensitive to spacing and you will get an error if there are any extra spaces in your code.
