Hi Venix!

Just remember that the exercise is focusing on using lists specifically...the question as that you replace Treehouse - the third item in the greeting_list at index 2, with the first item in full_list at index 0.

So with my name, I might do something like the following:

full_name = "Rhys Yorke"
name_list = full_name.split()
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm Treehouse".split()
greeting_list[2] = name_list[0]

Since greeting_list is a list each item can be addressed by an index. "Treehouse" is the 3rd item which has an index of 2 (due to 0-based indexing). Changing this item is as easy as:

greeting_list[2] = name_list[0]

Thank you guys I was over thinking it.
