Python Collections - creating lists

the answer is

my_list = [1,2,3,4,["tre","ees"]]

but why can't I write this?

tree = [4,"tree5"]

my_list = [1,2,3,"tree1",tree]

There's nothing wrong with the code you presented in the second option. It runs just fine in my local and online interpreter :)

adding a print(my_list) to test you wind up getting [1, 2, 3, 'tree1', [4, 'tree5']] as your returned result.
