sorting part 2
i dont know where im going wrong
from operator import itemgetter fruit_list = [ ('apple', 2), ('banana', 5), ('coconut', 1), ('durian', 3), ('elderberries', 4) ] sorted_fruit = sorted(fruit_list, key=itemgetter(fruit_list)) print(sorted_fruit
you seem to be missing the final

I don't think that code will work. You want to use 1 in itemgetter to specify the 2nd "slot" of the tuple.
This code works: sorted_fruit=sorted(fruit_list, key=itemgetter(1)) print(sorted_fruit)
