assign in this mutiply func a number for ex:

i = 1  #this argument of lists multiply with i 

and after for loop end i will be multiply of all arguments.

    for arg in args:  #4 spaces
        return arg      #8 spaces

seems like return in for loop (because python has space sensitive), therefore move return 4 spaces backward. (delete 4 spaces)

for arg in args:
    i *= arg

i will be return multiply of list arguments to each other , so return has to be:

return i

and

multiply(4 * 6)

you do not need to add this in your program in this challenge.
