efsher you need to add a space after the star while still in the quotations.

PS this might help you for the next question from Alex Koumparos 3 hours ago Hi yc5,

Strings behave, in most respects, like lists. For example, just like we could do this with a list:

my_list = ['h', 'e', 'l', 'l', 'o'] my_list[1] # will access the element at index 1, i.e., 'e' We can do the same thing with a string:

my_string = "hello" my_string[1] # will access the character at index 1: 'e' Now we know how to access an element at a position, we can put that in the if statement:

my_string = "hello" if my_string[1] == "e": print("the character is 'e'") Often, when dealing with strings, we want our tests to be case insensitive. One way we can do this is to ensure that regardless of the case we are being passed, we only look at the lowercase version of it:

my_string = "hELlO" if my_string[1].lower() == "e": print(my_string[1]) Hope that clears everything up for you
