It helps to use the "Get Help" button from inside the course because it adds a link to the course for you. Otherwise you should add a link to the course/challenge yourself. It's also good to share the answer you were attempting.

But, this particular question has been frequently asked before, like :pushpin: here, :pushpin: here, :pushpin: here, and :pushpin: here. It basically boils down to appying the len() function to the argument and returning the result. See the linked previous questions for more details.
