# OK, I need you to finish writing a function for me. The function disemvowel takes a single word as a parameter and then

i dont understand what this means, please, can someone explain it to me (I dont want a code i just dont know what the problem tell me to do) THANKS.

disemvowel.py
```def disemvowel(word):
word = ("a", "e", "i", "o","u")
if word = word.upercase():
word.remove()
else word = word.lowercase():
word.remove()

return word
```

MOD

Here is how I read the challenge:

OK, I need you to finish writing a function for me. The function `disemvowel` takes a single word as a parameter and then returns that word at the end.:

```def disemvowel(word):

# -- add code here --

return word
```

I need you to make it so, inside of the function, all of the vowels ("a", "e", "i", "o", and "u") are removed from the word.

The challenge is asking you to add code that will remove the upper and lower case vowels from the `word` argument passed in.

Since strings are immutable, you can't alter the strings pointed to by `word`. So, first off, the starting code should really look more like:

```def disemvowel(word):

# -- add code here --

return no_vowel_word
```

where it is more obvious that the object returned is not the same as the `word` provided.

To create the `no_vowel_word` you will need to:

• loop over each character in `word`
• if it is a lower- or uppercase-vowel, ignore the character
• if it is not a vowel, then save the character to be returned
• after loop, return all the saved characters as a single string

As the challenge says, Solve this however you want, it's totally up to you! So don't worry about style at first. Later we can look at how to improve your solution.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!
