This looks like a duplicate of your previous question, see the answer posted there.

As I said in my previous answer, this challenge is to reverse any kind of iterable including strings. And strings don't have a reverse() method, so you can't use it here.

Hint: try using a slice instead, since that works on any kind of iterable.
