Not sure what is being asked here. single argument, using json parse it where does the json object exist to get it from?

Any ideas?

import json

def from_json(arg):
    json_data = json.dumps({})
    json_data["arg"] = "value"
    return json_data.get(arg)

Hi Ron,

The json object is what is being passed into your function to parse. All you need to do is apply the json method to convert a json object to a string (hint: it's the opposite to dumps) then return it.
