Python Python Collections (Retired) Dictionaries String Formatting with Dictionaries

seems to be a treehouse parsing nuance. error 'list object has no attribute .format()

def string_factory(strin, dic):
   new_list = []
   for i in dic:
     new_list.append(strin.format(**i))
   print(new_list)
   return new_list

oh no, i found the mistake, just swap dic and strin in the method argument section. should be

def string_factory(dic, strin):

and you can remove the print statement
