Hey Justin,

You're pretty much there, except the colors need to be in quotation marks as they would be considered strings. Right now, without quotation marks around each one, Python thinks they are variables, which is why you are getting the 'undefined' error.

colors = ["red", "blue", "green", "yellow", "black"]

Keep Coding! :dizzy:

ok thanks
