stringcases: challenge needs to be more specific

the attached code should fulfill the requirement as requested ....but it comes back "bummer"....with no specifics on what doesn't match the AMBIGUOUS request...

stringcases.py
def stringcases(words):
    reverse = words[-1::-1]
    tuple_words = (words.upper(), words.lower(), words.capitalize(), reverse)
    return tuple_words

Very close. The .capitalize() method only capitalizes the very first character in the string. You want the .title() method. This capitalizes the first letter of each word.
