Since you are overriding the len method, you will need to call the super().__len__() method to get the initial value of the list. Alter this value to get the "lie".

Post back if you need more help.

Still not working

class Liar(list):
    def __init__(self,*args,**kwargs):
        super().__init__()

    def __len__(self):
        return super().__init__()+2

In this code, you need to use __len__ instead of __init__ in the super() statement.
