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 β€œIt 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!!!
