My code works, but I am getting some error messages from ''check work''? Any tips?

I need some hints for what am I doing wrong on this one.

# Example:
# values = [{"name": "Michelangelo", "food": "PIZZA"}, {"name": "Garfield", "food": "lasagna"}]
# string_factory(values)
# ["Hi, I'm Michelangelo and I love to eat PIZZA!", "Hi, I'm Garfield and I love to eat lasagna!"]

#list_a = [{"name":"Marko","food":"kivi"}, {"name":"Mladen", "food":"apples"}, {"name":"Milena", "food":"bananas"}]

translate = "Hi, I am {name}, and I love to eat {food}"

def string_factory(list_a):
    m = []
    position = 0
    while position < (len(list_a)):
        position = position + 1
    return m

1 Answer

Uses the variable that was given "template" not "translate"
