Python Functional Python Functional Workhorses Sorting

sorting fruit_list with sorted()

I tried sorted_fruit = sorted(fruit_list, key=itemgetter(1))

from operator import itemgetter
fruit_list = [
    ('apple', 2),
    ('banana', 5),
    ('coconut', 1),
    ('durian', 3),
    ('elderberries', 4)
 sorted_fruit = sorted(fruit_list, key=itemgetter(1))

You code is correct, except for the leading space before the sorted_fruit statement. Remove the space and it should pass.

That's the ticket!
