Python Python Basics Functions and Looping Raise an Exception

Raise the Value error?

I cant get this to go through/

suggestinator.py
def suggest(product_idea):
    return product_idea + "inator"
    raise ValueError('The string has too low length (# of chars should be > 3). '

1 Answer

Two things:

  1. You're missing the closing parentheses on your raise ValueError.
  2. The instructions say raise the error if the product idea is less than 3 characters long. That means you'll need an if statement somewhere in your code.

Hope this helps!
