Stuck on code challenge for "Python Basics"

Hey everyone,

I am stuck on the last task of the "Code Challenge: use .split() and .join()" on the Python Basics course. I can complete the first two tasks no problem, but when I submit my response for the final task, I get a message that states: "Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing." The thing is, I never changed any of the code for Task 1. I even went back to Task 1, completed it as before, then reworked Task 2, but nothing seems to work. I always get that message when I submit my answer for Task 3. Do you have any ideas?

Thank you so much, everybody!

Here's my code for the three tasks:

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(";")
menu = "Our available flavors are: {}."
display_menu = sundaes.join(", ")
menu = menu.format(display_menu)

1 Answer

the join method works different than the split method, your code needs to be ", ".join(sundaes)
