# Python Basics "In" challenge task 1-1

"I'm going to create a variable named time. It'll be an integer for the current hour (well, what I want the current hour to be). I need you to make an if condition that sets store_open to True if time is in store_hours. If time isn't in store_hours, set store_open to False. You'll probably have to use if, else, and in to solve this one."

```store_open = 10
store_hours = [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18]
if store_open in store_hours:
print("True")
else:
print("False")
```

It's a Bummer! ..sometimes the error message says False and True. Can somebody please help. Thanks. Cheers!

Hello Ahmed,

you're very close. Did you see in the question that there is a time variable that you have to check in the hours? Check the code Below and have a look.

```if time in store_hours:
store_open = True
else:
store_open = False
```

Thank you very much. It worked.

I'm going to create a variable named time. It'll be an integer for the current hour (well, what I want the current hour to be). I need you to make an if condition that sets store_open to True if time is in store_hours. If time isn't in store_hours, set store_open to False. You'll probably have to use if, else, and in to solve this one.

if time in store_hours:

``` store_open = True
```

else:

```  store_open = False
```

If I define "time" variable first, the entire code will error out. Bummer.

time = 14 if time in store_hours: <snap>

Yeah I was doing the same mistake. Actually time variable is pre-defined.
