Stringcases: When I return a single tuple with each str type in it, I get an error Wrong string(s) for:

Do I need to return a tuple with "All uppercase", uppercase string? The original string with a tuple of each str format?

def stringcases(str):
         return str.upper(), str.lower(), str.capitalize(), str[::-1]

This gives me the desired outcome in a python shell. Is the question just poorly worded and I'm not fulfilling other requirements because this definitely returns a tuple with all string formats asked for.

You are using the wrong method, 'capitalize()' is not what it is asked for. You should use a method that capitalizes the first letter of every word in your string.

You can type help(str) for the class help messages. This should give you the method for the .title(case) that the challenge asks for. ;)
