Hi Abdulkadir,

In the first line, it looks like you have the number 1 in the variable name, but in the second line, you have a lowercase l instead. If you switch the latter to a 1, the code should pass.

Hope this helps!

"varl = list('abcdet')" worked. I dont know why the string did not work though. Thanks for the response.
