Hi there, Riley Ittidecharchoti! You're really close, but you need to remove the print() parts. The print() function simply prints something, but it has no return value, so it returns None which will then be cast to a string and recorded in the log file as "None", which isn't what you're wanting.

It would be similar to doing the following:


If you were to run that code, it would first print the word "Hi" to the console, then on a new line it would print the word "None" because you're telling it to print what was returned by the print("Hi") portion.

So instead of:

logging.warning(print("The French have the Grail"))

You just need:

logging.warning("The French have the Grail")

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

thank you so much!!
