item.py
```import random
def random_item(sample):
random_item=random.randint(0,len(sample)-1)
return sample
```

You're returning the function argument:

```import random
def random_item(sample):
random_item=random.randint(0,len(sample)-1)
return random_item
```

Try something like returning "random_item", which is the variable you likely intended to return.

```>>> import random
>>> def random_item(sample):
...     random_item=random.randint(0,len(sample)-1)
...     return random_item
...
>>> random_item([1,3,44,90])
3
>>> [random_item([1,3,44,90]) for x in range(100)]
[0, 2, 0, 2, 3, 1, 2, 0, 3, 1, 2, 0, 3, 2, 3, 2, 0, 1, 0, 1, 3, 0, 1, 0, 3, 3, 3, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 2, 0, 3, 0, 0, 3, 1, 0, 3, 3, 1, 3, 3, 0, 3, 3, 0, 1, 0, 3, 2, 2, 1, 1, 3, 1, 2, 3, 2, 3, 0, 3, 1, 0, 2, 2, 0, 2, 0, 3, 1, 0, 3, 1, 3, 3, 3, 0, 3, 0, 2, 0, 1, 1, 1, 3, 3, 0, 2, 3, 1, 0, 3, 3, 0, 0, 0, 2]
```

Also, based on the func you wrote, I would imagine you want to return a random element from the input list? You're just choosing a random integer based on the length of the input array. Try using another method from the random module

```>>> dir(random)
