Still getting an error for 2 blank lines despite having blank lines after everything.

Despite having 2 blank lines after all functions and classes, the question is still telling me I need 2 blank lines:

import datetime

def my_func():
    return "It ran!"

sizes = ["small", "medium", "large"]

class Tree:    
    def __init__(self, size, characteristics):
        self.size = size
        self.charac = characteristics
        self.roots = True
        self.leaves = 0

    def grow_leaves(self):
        self.leaves += 1

Tree(sizes[0], {"name": "Tulip Tree"})

Developers: this code should pass the challenge but the checker only accepts single quotes and not double quotes when counting blank lines after return “It ran!”

Hey Serge Kovalenko, you code is correct except the challenge checker is expecting single quotes instead of double quotes .

I see this as a bug in the checker since all double quotes is valid. I will flag this as an checker error.

:point_right: to move forward, change all the double quotes to single quotes.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
