I've marked your original post where the trailing spaces are. Curiously, your second code post does not have trailing spaces.

To be sure the last line ends in a newline character, add a new line to the end of the file, then delete all blank lines at the bottom of the file. The hidden \n will remain.

Post back if you're still stuck. Good luck!!

def first_function(arg1):
    return 'arg1 is {}'.format(arg1)


def second_function(arg1):
    return 'arg1 is {}'.format(arg1)


class MyClass:

    args = [1, 2, 3]

    def class_func(self):
        return self.args
