I'm going to create a variable named time. It'll be an integer for the current hour (well, what I want the current hour to be). I need you to make an if condition that sets store_open to True if time is in store_hours. If time isn't in store_hours, set store_open to False. You'll probably have to use if, else, and in to solve this one.

My Code:

store_open = None
store_hours = [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18]
time = 20
if time in store_hours:
  store_open = True
else:
  store_open = False

error: store_open is not True

Hi there,

You don't need to set time:

store_open = None
store_hours = [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18]

if time in store_hours:
  store_open = True
else:
  store_open = False

That should work for you - you'd pretty much done that anyway!

Don't set the time variable.

Kenneth Love has instructions in there that state he'll set the time variable, so you just handle the logic for determining if the time is in store hours. That should get your code to pass.
