Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Lists Disemvowel

Please help to proceed this task using loops.

I'm not going to find easy ways :) so what to use loops instead of creating new list and append it, if i is in vowels

Appreciate for help in that style. Thank you in advance

vowels = ["a","e","i","o","u"]

def disemvowel(word):
    for i in list(word.lower()):
        for y in list(vowels.lower()):
            if i == y:
return (word)

Please see my new code: word = "aadeddsf" vowels = ["a","e","i","o","u"] def disemvowel(word): for i in list(word.lower()): for y in list(vowels): try: list(word).remove(y) except ValueError: break if i == y: list(word).remove(y) print("{} need to be removed, but not. and the proof word is:".format(y)) print(word) disemvowel(word)

Just run please and let me know why list(word).remove(y) is not working.

Thank you

A few issues stand out at first glance:

  • you don't need to print anything in this challenge
  • the return statement needs to be indented
  • trying to remove a lower-cased version of a capital letter won't work
  • you can't use ".lower()" on a list, and the vowels are lower case already
  • you don't need an else
