Ashmit Pathak, please put a bit more time in creating more meaningful question titles. You now have several "SOS" posts.

First of all, your indentation is off. Python is picky about indentation.

Second, the variable sum was never defined. You need to define it.

I hope this helps! :grin:

Happy coding! :zap: ~Alex
