Here are a few hints:

  • the argument is a string, but strings do not have a "remove" method
  • you could convert the string into a list (and convert it back later)
  • you could also possibly make use of the "replace" method that strings have
  • with either approach, you'll probably need a loop to work with each letter one at a time
