Quiz not allowing me to pass

Doesn't make sense... my code works in workspaces but it doesn't work for the quiz. Says its not being reversed correctly and doesn't give me any hints as to how the correct way to reverse it is. I tried sorted(arg, reverse=True) but of course that doesn't work because of the list within the list. Idk what to do.

backwards = [
    [5, 4, 3, 2, 1],

def reverse(arg):
    newlist = []
    count = len(arg)
    for i in reversed(range(0, count)):
    return newlist

Hi! You should be returning a reversed version of the thing passed in not a list with the thing reversed. For example, the first is the string 'tac' and you are returning ['c', 'a', 't'] instead of 'cat'.
