Raise an exception

Hi Guys,

I'm having trouble understanding this exercise of the raise exception in tree-house.

I understand it and can implement it else where but this particular exercise, I'm not interpreting correctly.

Can someone please assist me.

Much appreciate it if someone can explain in detail.


The question:

Can you please raise a ValueError if the product_idea is less than 3 characters long? product_idea is a string.

Def suggest(product_idea): return product_idea + "inator"

suggestinator.py
def suggest(product_idea):
    return product_idea + "inator"
