override the add_item method

Since it asks to override 'add_item' I wouldn't use init like in the video? I tried either way but can't figure out how I'm using super() wrong.

class Inventory:
    def __init__(self):
        self.slots = []

    def add_item(self, item):

class SortedInventory(Inventory):
    def add_item(self, item)

Hi there! You're not using it incorrectly, but you have one syntax error and one indentation problem. You still need a colon at the end of the definition of the add_item function. The call to super() should be indented inside that function definition. When I correct these 2 things, your code passes Step 2.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
